Navigating your new life as a single parent isn’t going to be easy. You have many things to consider as you think about how your household is going to work. As you figure out what works and what doesn’t, you might realize that you’ve made a mistake.

All parents make mistakes. You shouldn’t be too hard on yourself when you do. You also shouldn’t harp on ones that your ex makes. Instead, remember that forgiving yourself and your ex can help to diffuse a stressful situation.

No matter who made the mistake, take a step back and look at the situation for what it is. There is a good chance that the mistake was just a minor one. If the children are healthy and safe, small mistakes should be overlooked.

Once you realize that there was a mistake made, you should work to correct any ill results from it. Even if your ex was the one to make it, you might be able to help fix things.

You might need to work on figuring out ways that you can avoid making that same mistake in the future. Knowing how to head off the issue later might make your life a lot easier. Enlisting the help of those who are close to you might be beneficial for accomplishing this.

Make sure that you are always respectful to your ex. You are a team working to raise children together even if you aren’t married. The way that you handle mistakes and interact with each other can have a significant impact on your children.
