Strangers Are Baffled By Dad’s Romantic Gift For Ex-Wife, Then He Tells Them About Their 2 Sons

No matter how much some couples love one another, sometimes they find it best to go their separate ways.

When kids are involved, the parents need to consider the well-being of their children.

For dad Billy Flynn, this goes beyond figuring out where his two sons will stay, or for how many days of the week he will have them home. He wants to show his sons what kind of men they should grow up to become. He says that just because he and their mom are no longer together, they are still a family.

He posted on Facebook, as it was his ex-wife’s birthday, about what he does for her every year.

He still goes out and buys her flowers and cards, and helps their sons make her breakfast. He says that people always ask him why he would do such a thing — and his sweet response makes total sense!

You can read why the dad insists on being more than kind to his ex-wife below.

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.

Billy Flynn

Per usual someone asked me why the hell I still do things for her all the time. This annoys me. So ima break it down for you all.

Billy Flynn

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.

Billy Flynn

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 s**t together.

Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you.

Raise good men. Raise strong women. Please. The world needs them, now more than ever.
