So, the way you treat your ex, their parent, their other parent,
is, in a sense, the way you are treating them.
So, if you can connect those two things and realize
that by belittling the other parent, you’re belittling them.”
~ Robert Beeson,
Founder – Solo Parent Society

to make them possible.”
~ T. E. Lawrence,

“Everything you do,
every thought you have,

With that in mind,
be very conscious and selective.”
