If you are a single parent, do you get along with your child(ren)'s mother/father? I get along well with my daughter's father. It took some time to get to where him and I are at now. I think the reason that I have come to being able to get along with him is my appreciation towards him as not only being a good loving father to my daughter, but him as a man overall. He's never cursed at me, he's never raised his voice to me, he has a good head on his shoulders, he's educated, he's a good husband to his wife , he's a good father to my daughter and to his other children...I have to say that I am grateful and blessed, even though him I are no longer together. I had to rid myself of the bitterness that I had towards him. I had to accept the situation for what it really is. I could have had a deadbeat man to be the father of my child. Any man whom I marry and is going to be the father of my kid has to have the same standards as my daughter's father, and then some... I'm glad that I feel okay to communicate with him and can attend school conferences together, and other functions for my daughter. Our focus is on the child that we have together and that is our common goal.
