Media personality Terryanne Chebet has openly admitted to the public that she once used her daughter to revenge against her angry ex-spouse
Chebet responded to her anxious fan on YouTube who wanted to know co-parenting between her and her ex worked successfully
The former Citizen TV news anchor first admitted it was not easy at all over because the issues between her and the ex were very extreme.
‘Try to be in a place where you respect each other, so have you have to get there first, respect takes a long time to grow especially after trust has been broken or there are feelings of distress, that has caused problems’
It’s easy to co-parent, but I don’t think it’s 100 percent easy, but it had to get to a place where we put the child first. I always say you don’t have to be best friends with your co-parent. Have a cordial relationship that they can call and talk to the child or pick the child’
Lastly, Chebet shared some useful tips regarding how to manage the situations.
“Make sure you both understand the child is more important than what you are going through. I have seen women use the child to revenge on the man, I have done that because you’re upset with the father, but with time and maturity and wisdom, and speaking to older people who have been there and the advice they gave me is that it’s not you who will suffer in the end by denying the child access to the father, so let’s put our egos aside and focus on what is best for the child,’
