Who To Honor? By Whom? And How?

Feel free to chime in regarding any of the following…

Bio Parents:

  • Do you expect to be honored for Mother’s Day? (or Father’s Day, as the case may be)
  • How do you feel about your co-parent’s significant other assisting your children in selecting/purchasing gifts?
  • Do you help your children select/purchase gifts for your co-parent on Mother/Father’s Day?
  • Do you communicate to your children the value of your co-parent’s partner on Mother/Father’s Day?
  • Do you communicate to your children the value of your own partner on Mother/Father’s Day?

Partners of Parents:

  • How do you feel about honoring the children’s other parent on these holidays?
  • Do you participate in gift selection/purchase for the other parent?  (why or why not?)
  • Do you expect/desire to be recognized as a parental figure in the lives of your partner’s children?
