Uh oh, it looks like celebrity exes Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are making celebrity news yet again. According to EOnline.com, Disick was very upset he was not invited to her sister, Khloe Kardashian’s surprise birthday party. In a preview for next week’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode, a disgruntled Disick confronts his ex, saying, “I would have wanted to be there for her” because he still considers himself part of the family. When asked for explanation, Kardashian explained that she was worried about the photos and press attention – but later reveals that she simply did not want her celebrity ex to be there. The preview ends with Disick calling his celebrity ex “really fake” for not being honest with him. Yikes!

This celebrity news shows that these exes aren’t necessarily civil all of the time. What are some parameters you can put on your relationship with your ex if you have children together?

Cupid’s Advice:

Breakups can be messy. Breakups with kids can be really messy. While Kardashian and Disick try and remain civil for the sake of their three children, it’s clear they face their fair share of problems. If you’re having trouble with an ex, Cupid has some tips that you can implement into your life:

1. Kick the emotions to the curb: You must keep your frustrations and all negative feelings about your ex between the two of you. It’s easy to jump to conclusions and expect the worst from your ex if you ended on bad terms and continue to have drama. Your child (or children) are the most important commitment you two share, so when they’re around, get along as best as you possibly can.

2. Have a clear-cut plan: Early on into your separation or divorce, it is pivotal to have a clear and defined custody agreement. Between the two of you, decide on a visitation schedule and figure out how you will celebrate holidays and their birthdays. It won’t be easy by any means, but it will really help you diffuse potential conflicts from arising.

3. Leave the new boyfriend/girlfriend out: Introducing a new person into your child’s life can be complicated. It is best to leave the parenting to the parents until the relationship becomes very serious. That way, you and your ex can learn how to co-parent maturely and avoid playing the blame game with each other.
