Minnesota Judge Has 200 Blunt Words for Divorcing Parents
By Judge Michael Haas 2001
“Your children have come into this world because of the two of you. Perhaps you two made lousy choices as to whom you decided to be the other parent. If so, that is your problem and your fault.
No matter what you think of the other party—or what your family thinks of the other party—these children are one-half of each of your. Remember that, because every time you tell your child what an “idiot” his father is, or what a “fool” his mother is, or how bad the absent parent is, or what terrible things that person has done, you are telling the child half of him is bad.
That is an unforgivable thing to do to a child. That is not love. That is possession. If you do that to your children, you will destroy them as surely as if you had cut them into pieces, because that is what you are doing to their emotions.
I sincerely hope that you do not do that to your children. Think more about your children and less about yourselves, and make yours a selfless kind of love, not foolish or selfish, or your children will suffer.”
|"What has that got to do with me? It's all Levi's fault!"|
By the way from everything that I have ever heard, Levi NEVER runs Bristol down in front of his son. According to Sherry, "Levi has never talked bad about Bristol. Not even to me."
In fact he has ALWAYS been careful to say nice things about her, and even in his book he never said ANYTHING derogatory.
And he certainly had every reason to do so.
It is sad to see that Bristol is so vindictive that she literally launched an entire reality show whose sole purpose was to run down the father of her son. It really does not get much more immature than that.
No matter WHAT Levi might have done to hurt her feelings in the past, what she has done in retaliation is inexcusable.
