Divorce with Children: Does Your Ex Still Push Your Buttons?

Long after the divorce, many couples remain emotionally entangled and when children are involved, co-parenting can be exasperating. Maybe your hot button issues are still active and your former knows exactly where to push to get you to react, or vice versa. Ouch! Trying to convince the other person about what is wrong with them, blaming or criticizing them is a big mistake. Why? You give away your power to your Ex when you focus on them.

I doubt that you want your children to think it is not safe to speak openly with you but that can easily happen when you don’t acknowledge your own emotional triggers and learn ways to control them.
