Co-Parenting Success: Florida Single Mom Is Grateful For Son's Father Who Doesn't Pay Child Support - Here's Why!
A Florida single mom expressed her gratitude for the father of her son and their unusually inspiring story is going viral. Jon Megason has never paid child support but his ex-partner Jessica Singleton is still singing his praises.
Singleton posted her appreciation for her ex-partner on Facebook. She said even if she's no longer with Megason, she can still rely on him for many things especially when it comes to co-parenting their little boy, Pierson.
Singleton doesn't even have any problems with Megason when it comes to child support, so the ex-couple didn't need to settle things in court. "This is a man who doesn't pay a dime through the state because when my son needs new clothes, I just call him," Singleton related.
Apart from helping her out with Pierson, the single mom said her ex lends her a shoulder to cry on when she's stressed out. The Florida mom, however, admitted getting to this level with Megason, where they can truly co-parent positively, was not an easy journey.
"The amount of obstacles we've had to overcome to get to this point are tremendous. This was not easy, this was a choice." Read Singleton's entire message praising her ex-partner and co-parent below.
The post has received over 165,000 likes, 137,000 shares and 17,000 comments as of press time. Megason, on the other hand, also responded with his own post on Facebook to praise his co-parent.
The positive messages about their co-parenting left commenters wondering why the two individuals aren't together, according to Good Housekeeping. One person simply stated that being great parents is different from being great romantic partners.
Experts remind former couples that the kind of relationship they have with each other after the breakdown of a relationship impacts the children. If they can have a positive relationship, then the kids can also have a good bond with both parents, which will help them adjust to the situation physically, emotionally and even mentally or academically, according to Divorce Magazine.
