A divorced dad’s social media post about co-parenting with his ex-wife has gone viral after he reminded people that they need to put their differences aside and ‘be an example’ for their children.
In a heartfelt Facebook post, Billy Flynn Gadbois, 36, encouraged divorced parents to ‘show each other respect and care’ in front of their children.
The Boston dad wrote the post in October after he woke up early to buy flowers, cards and breakfast so his kids could surprise their mom, his ex-wife, on her birthday.
I’m raising two little men. The example I set for how I treat their mom is going to significantly shape how they see and treat women and affect their perception of relationships.
‘So if you aren’t modeling good relationship behavior for your kids, get your sh** together. Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you.’
