What are the right things to say and do to support your child?

Daddy has a new girlfriend!

Remember the feelings of anticipation and hope with that new life growing inside of you. You dreamt of being the perfect parent and having the ideal family. Then this tiny bundle was born, and your feelings made the world move slower, and your heart beat faster. This little person, your responsibility. While it was one of the hardest things, you have ever done, the reward was unspeakable. The love you felt had no bounds, and there is nothing you would not do to keep your child safe and secure.

Your parenting styles are different, but you worked together. With the same core values of bringing up a happy and healthy child.  As a couple, even though your backgrounds were different and the way you were brought up, you found common ground.
