Think Your Child’s Other Parent Isn’t Fit to be a Parent?

This is a normal feeling and experience for parents who’ve entered the new world of shared-parenting. While it is quite natural, one must realize that naturally or normal in this case isn’t going to work out for your best interest. Therefore, one must learn how to overcome this common feeling.

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you…

I almost said “scripture says”, but in this case it’s Jesus who gives us the advice to do for others the very things we want others to do for us. By the way, taking this approach isn’t common, normal or natural. With that said, you’ll need to learn how to apply this in every situation and since we’re talking about parenting we can start here. To overcome thinking your child’s other parent isn’t fit to parent, what can you do for them that you’d want done for you if the shoe was on the other foot.

[Pray This]

Lord, if You would help me to trust my child’s other parent in the same way I want my child’s other parent to trust me, in Jesus’ name.

Your Action (What action based on your prayer can you take?):
Start by taking one action that helps you overcome the distrust you’ve had in your child’s other parent.
