Hi, everyone! Mike and Summer here, and welcome to the Everything Always podcast! Today, we’re talking about boundaries – specifically with your ex-partner. Clear boundaries are so important to maintaining a healthy relationship with your new partner and family.
We’ve followed three rules to keep healthy boundaries with our ex-partners. The first rule is to put your partner and family first. Always. The second is to keep your communication with your co-parent all business, and the third is to create guidelines for your communication.
The creation of these rules came through experience. Lots of it. But by following them, we’ve kept respectful relationships with our exes without crossing the line and creating uncomfortable situations at home in the process. Join us to learn more about these three rules, and see how you can implement them ASAP!
