Dr. Wolf: Your ex is bad-mouthing you. What do you tell the kids?
From The Globe and Mail:
On one of his weekend visits with his father, Duane tells him: “Hey Dad, Mom says you and her got a divorce because you used to get real mad all the time, and that you were really mean to her. She says if it weren’t for the way that you treated her, you’d still be married.”
Anyone who is divorced knows there’s nothing that creates such passion as when your ex twists the story and casts you as the villain. They are telling the history. But to you it is a history built of lies.
Duane’s father fumes to himself, “I can’t believe she’s feeding him this poison. She’s so insecure, she takes every chance to put me down. The truth is it was exactly the opposite. She was impossible. She was the one who had these constant tantrums. I can’t let Duane have this totally distorted view of what went on. I have to set the record straight.”
