Transcription: 
Divorce is so difficult and I think what I would have done differently as a parent is I would have made the separation clearer. Because I thought my ex and I could still have dinners sometimes and go to our kids games together, do Christmas and Thanksgiving. That was nuts; I don't know what I was thinking. Because what happened was the separation wasn't clear. My kids weren't clear about what was happening, my ex wasn't clear about what was happening and it prolonged the misunderstanding that we were not together as a family anymore. So what I would have done differently was made a clearer break, a very clear separation. We could not have dinner together, we wouldn't be able to do the family things together; that unit would now function differently.
