After a divorce, it is common for both spouses to feel a certain level of distrust and anger towards each other. Child custody issues and visitation rights are perhaps the two most divisive issues between parents who share a child. Arguments can erupt easily, and emotions can run high whenever warring ex-spouses must deal with one another in matters regarding their child.
However, it is important to always remember that how your child views your relationship with your ex-spouse may negatively influence his or her own relationships in the future. That's why you should adopt a policy of interacting with your ex-spouse as if you were at your job. Be polite, limit your use of profanity and refrain from name-calling and other personal attacks. Honor your pickup and drop-off times just as you would show up to work: on time, every time.
