His Child’s Mother Is His Responsibility Not Yours!
If a man doesn’t put his foot down and demand that his child’s mother respect his woman then he doesn’t deserve to be called a man, and he damn sure doesn’t deserve to be called a leader. And I don’t mean stepping up weeks, months, or years after an incident has occurred; he’s got to set the boundaries from day one, because once an ignorant, bitter, and crazy ex realizes she can use the children as leverage it’s a green light for her to go ballistic whenever she feels like it. The further the man steps back the more emboldened she becomes. In her mind, she’s not only in control of him but his relationships as well. She has the power to get their days off to a rotten start, all it takes is a dramatic phone call first thing in the morning and it’s all down hill from there. Or better yet, she will start a fight over something trivial to keep them from getting a good night’s sleep. And if she can’t get to him through the phone, text, or e-mails, she’ll use the best weapon of all—the children.
