This dad brought his ex-wife flowers for the best possible reason

A single dad named Billy is being heralded for his efforts to raise his two young boys in a way that will allow both of them to learn what it means to treat women with love and respect.

Billy recently took to Facebook where he explained why he brought his ex-wife flowers on her birthday.

“I’m raising two little men,” he says in the post. That’s why– when his ex’s birthday came up – he decided to go the extra mile and make her feel appreciated on her special day.

He doesn’t want to get back together with his wife but he did want his boys to learn an important lesson.

Here’s Billy’s full Facebook post.

“It’s my ex-wife’s birthday today so I got up early and brought flowers and cards and a gift over for the kids to give her and helped them make her breakfast. Per usual someone asked me why I still do things for her all the time. This annoys me. So ima break it down for you all.

I’m raising two little men. The example I set for how I treat their mom is going to significantly shape how they see and treat women and affect their perception of relationships. I think even more so in my case because we are divorced.

So if you aren’t modeling good relationship behavior for your kids, get your [act] together…Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you.”

Divorce can be hard on any family but this dad has found a nice balance that we can all learn from — Share if you agree.
