A lot of the kids get absorbed messages from the disgruntled parent or let's say the parent who was rejected. So it's very important to try your best to be a clean slate, a blank clean slate for your child's sake. If you have unfinished business with your ex and harbor resentment or anger towards them, do your best to, forgive the language, suck it up! - Oh I like that. - On the weekend for your child and allow this to be a celebratory monumental step, that is celebrated for your child and not contaminated or tainted with your unfinished business. You know, whether it's your ex who has a new girlfriend or you've got a new boyfriend, it is healthy and inevitable  that at some point that's going to happen on either side and hopefully ultimately on both sides. You want to give your child, young or minor or adult child permission to love and respect both parents and to be loved and cared for by as many people as possible in their world.
