fbpx How Do I Create Boundaries With My Ex-Wife?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on March 8, 2022
Dear Dr. Michelle:

My ex and I have been divorced for several years now and it's amicable, but I'm frustrated -- she still turns to me for help with things around the house all the time. I want to do what's right for my kids and I like helping but I'm starting to feel taken advantage of. How do I say no without rocking the boat?

Dear Brian:
