Your Ex and Facebook
Over the past couple of weeks I have seen in a couple of single parent Facebook groups, a few different postings of people getting upset by what they have seen on their ex's Facebook page. Yes curiosity of what your ex is up to is only natural, but why do it to yourself? I have nothing against befriending an ex of the distant past that you no longer have any ties to, I've befriended a few ex's over the years, but when it comes to your children's other parent, unless you guys have a remarkable co-parenting relationship and get on great, don't do it, don't even stalk their page, there is very little positive that will come of it.
Reasons why not to stalk your ex's Facebook page, or befriend them:
Very rarely are there going to be positives from stalking your ex's Facebook page or befriending them. Don't upset yourself by what they are or are not doing. You have to co-parent with this person for the rest of your lives, so try and keep the relationship with them as positive as possible, even if they are presently absent from your child's life - there may be a time when the re-enter into it. Remember that children are more likely to thrive when they see that their parents can get along, instead of fighting and bickering. Keep focused on your own life and doing the amazing job that you are doing raising your children.
