"I'm not just a Saturday playmate"

Recommended Posts

Why do we go through the hassle and pain of coparenting (often with someone with whom we might prefer not to have any contact if not for the kids)? It's because kids benefit from multiple parents. The other parent's involvement involvement isn't just for them, it's for the kids.

From an Instagram post--"I’m not just a Saturday playmate."

It can be really hard to decide how to spend your time with your kids when the time is limited. You want to do things with them and bond with them, but you also don't just want to be special occasion "Disney dad", you want to be there for the normal lives.

I give them some alone screen time, and we watch some series and movies together, but I definitely prefer not to have them just watch iPad or youtube all day when they're with me.
