The Art of Co-Parenting 

I grew up in an abnormal environment if one considers being raised by a mother who told me my father was dead when he wasn’t, abnormal. 

To suggest I had emotional issues around trust would be an accurate description of my headspace, however in light of my  experience and an overview of human history , I believe my lack of trust is well founded. 

My daughter doesn’t remember me living with her mother so the spending time in both homes is very comfortable and normal to her.

I couldn’t live with her mother, the reasons irrelevant, however suffice to say I had to protect me. I am however able to be cordial from the safety of seperate homes.
