Billy Flynn Gadbois from Boston is both a dad and an ex-husband who chose to accomplish something for his ex that many won’t approve.
"It's my ex-wife's birthday today so I got up early and brought flowers and cards and a gift over for the kids to give…
To be specific, he astonished her on her birthday with blossoms, an adoring birthday card, and a morning meal that he made together with their children.
When he got inquired as to why despite everything he does that, he said that that question annoys him because he is raising two little men and he needs to set the right example on how they should treat women.
He included that when the kids see their father how he treats their mother will shape the manner in which they see women and will influence the manner they see relationships when they grow old.
“So if you aren’t modeling good relationship behaviour for your kids, get your sh*t together. Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you. Raise good men. Raise strong women. Please. The world needs them, now more than ever”, he finishes his post.
However, Billy says that it wasn’t easy for him and his better half to conquer their issues. They needed to figure out how to overcome their outrage and resentment they had for one another. This was difficult, however, they expected to do it for their children.
“We’ve worked hard over time to establish our boundaries and find ways to manage our interactions so our own issues are minimalised or left at home when it comes to the kids. It’s an ongoing process but you can see a huge difference in the happiness and confidence and security of the boys since we started working at it,” he concludes.
