Father’s Relationships With Their Kids Post-Divorce Can Be Better Than Before The Split
All Dads – Read This!
I posted this image today and wrote about the ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ re. improved relationships between dads and their kids post divorce, and this lovely comment was shared (I post with his permission):
“To expand on this, I found separation to be massively empowering for me as a father. Prior to separation, parenting had primarily been my wife’s domain – this was because she was so good at it, because she had strong views about it and because I was at work most of the time.
I didn’t really need to think about it too much – nor did I try massively. I was by no means a “bad” father, just more of a passive one, and I relied on the security of knowing my wife would always have everything covered.
After separation, I had to take full responsibility for the children when they were with me – feeding them, playing with them, ensuring they were healthy, being there for them when they were upset, looking after them when they were ill…everything. I love it. And all this whilst still working full-time. I’m very proud of the parent I’ve become.” (Aniket Patel )
