It’s not an everyday action for me to tune in and see whats the latest news on television. That is until the Wendy Williams Show comes on I just have to listen. Wendy is an incredible individual who is both intelligent and entertaining. Every show has a different topic, and it’s so hard passing up the opportunity to tune in when it airs. But today’s show was great, and the topic was something you could really think about at any time.
Today’s show was a special segment featuring none other than Dr. Phil himself. For those who don’t know, Gwyneth and Chris Martin are now divorced, but they have two beautiful children. Gwyneth and Chris Martin have decided to take the road of co-parenting. After knowing this, I had to pay close attention so I wouldn’t miss anything that was going on in this video clip.
As a parent, is it right to have your children suffer through all the commotion just because you can’t get along with one another?
Now I want to share my thoughts about the situation. I myself have been through the divorce stage, so I understand the fact that it can be difficult. Divorce isn’t a joke, but I agree with the way that Gwyneth and Chris have decided to handle the situation. Not a lot of divorced parents out there understand that the split can do damage to their child even at a young age. Through the way of co-parenting, they are giving their children the opportunity to have both of their parents in their life.
I also agree with what Dr. Phil was stating in his point of view. If a child has to go through the holidays (Birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.) where no one is comfortable, it wouldn’t turn out well at all. No child can deal with the fact that their parents can’t get along. If that were the case, then yes it would be confusing to the kids. Because in the end, the children always get dragged in the middle of the situation and it can only get worst when they grow older.
I agree with the co-parenting lifestyle that Gwyneth and Chris have decided to take up. I feel their kids won’t have to go through the emotional struggle that some kids have to deal with. Wendy and Dr. Phil are both intelligent individuals and both made valid points about the situation.
What about your input on the situation. Do you agree with the style of co-parenting or is bound to be confusing for the kids?
