Respecting the importance of each parent in the lives of their children, despite the end of romantic love, is crucial for successful co-parenting. This means acknowledging and valuing the contributions and influence of both parents in the upbringing of their children. But what happens when co-parenting goes wrong and it slowly turns into an ego battle that two parents fight with each other?
