When two people decide to tie the knot, they believe it’s forever. But sometimes being with someone through better or worse is harder than it seems, and many couples nowadays see the divorce as the only logical solution to the obstacles they are facing as married partners. Instead of trying to smooth things out, the union ends with hard words said to one another, long and tiring custody battles, and children who are confused and wonder what is happening.
However, even if this is the case, people who have children together should try their best to make their offspring feel loved. Co-parenting is not easy, because once you split with the person you were once together with, it’s common to judge their parenting abilities. Joint custody arrangements can be exhausting and fraught with stress, but sometimes, that’s the only way to assure your kids retain close relationship with both parents.
We do believe that there are tips that can lead to great co-parenting, such as setting the anger aside, and not putting the kids in the middle giving them the choice to choose between their mom and dad. But at the end of the day, being a co-parent is easier said than done and we do believe every person has different opinion on the matter.
The below story is one example of how the kids’ needs should be on the top of the list of priorities of divorced parents.
Laura Lee and her two kids, Darcie 11, and Callum 9, were about to have the time of their life taking a Mediterranean trip. But to their surprise, there was a familiar face at the airport, waiting at the same terminal. The kids were left puzzled, what was their dad doing there? Was there any chance that he was coming too? Yes, Dean Bone was going to Cyprus with his ex-wife and their kids.
Being separated didn’t mean they couldn’t put their misunderstandings on the side and take vacation together, all for the well-being of their little joys.
This story is a very special one, and has been shared by many people who believe that many other parents who share custody of their kids should do the same. It’s obvious that both Dee and Bone have made a concentrated effort to keep things copacetic.
In an interview with Newsflare, mom, Laura Dee, gave a statement many parents in her situation can relate to. “As parents seeing our children upset is hard, all we want is to make our children happy. Co-parenting is hard for many people but we are proud of what we have achieved with bringing our children up.”
Now that you know the background of this special family, it’s time to take a look at the heartwarming video and the ultimate reaction of the lovely boy and girl who realize their vacation will be like the one they used to have, with both their guardians by their side.
If this isn’t the perfect co-parenting, we don’t know what is. We do believe these mom and dad are so caring and devoted that they’ll do anything for their kids’ happiness. Please share your thoughts on this subject with us in the comments below.
