2. Keep it simple.
When it’s clear that cooperation from your ex is nearly impossible, don’t keep shooting yourself in the foot by trying to gain it. Create scenarios that don’t ask you to rely on them, as they are likely to let you down, intentionally.
If necessary, create other support systems for your kids so you will not have to reach out to your ex when you need it —– and as a human being you will need it. Line up those supports now so they are ready to help when needed.
