In this article, Michelle Lewis describes some common relationship dynamics that lead to arguments between former spouses and thwart effective dialogue and coparenting. She provides guidance to help parents recognize when they have fallen into the traps of (1) assuming they each know the full story of “what happened”; (2) believing their former partner acted with malevolent intent in causing anger, frustration or pain for them; and (3) blaming the other person entirely.
