“Bruce loves when Mom and Dad are together, because he gets to talk to both of us at the same time and tell us about his day and show us the new things he can do,” Baldwin told People.
Divorce can be a stressful time for a child, particularly if both parents are not getting along. But Baldwin told People that divorce is “about you and your spouse.”
“While you are divorcing the parent, you are not divorcing the child,” she said. “Make an effort to include [your ex] — it may sting you, it may make you cringe because you have hurt feelings or anger or sadness — but your child will thrive because of it.
“Your child needs two parents who love them, not necessarily parents who love each other. …Bruce didn’t ask for the divorce, we did. So we need to sacrifice to make sure he doesn’t have to.”
