This dad’s post about his ex-wife is going viral because it offers and incredibly beautiful view on life. It offers an alternative way of raising children coming from a divorced couple. With a single post, this dad managed to motivate and army of divorced people to think about raising their children a different way.

Billy Flynn is a Boston-based dad who decided to help his kids in surprising his ex-wife, their mother, on her birthday. He helped his two sons out with by bringing flowers and cards, and here’s the reason why he did it. For those people out there still wondering why someone would go through all that effort for his ex, we’ll give you a hint – It’s not to get back with them and it’s definitely not to seem like the bigger person after the breakup.

Here’s why:

“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. 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.

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. 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 shit 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.” wrote Billy Flynn on Facebook.

    This is great only if it’s reciprocal. Raising your kids showing them a one sided relationship where either is in servitude to the other is damaging however.

      What’s the alternative? I’ve never been able to figure this out; I treat mom as best I can, while she does everything from undermining my authority and criticizing me. I document and will occasionally take it to court, and guess who the villain is? The only conclusion I can come to is that her poor behavior is court-sanctioned, and that I am held to a much higher standard.

      Now, I’m not suggesting I be allowed to pull the crap she does, but if I step one toe out of line ( don’t help our daughter buy her mother a birthday gift…yes, the mediator AND judge got on my ass for that ) I’m threatened with loss of custodial time. Meanwhile, mom is given a free pass.

      So, I keep my mouth shut and do everything I can knowing the courts are horrendously biased against dads. But still I wonder….what’s the alternative?

        Sorry man, I know it’s hard. That situation really sucks. The best thing we can do right now is to raise awareness about female nature, so that other men don’t have to be dragged over the coals.

    Advice for men on how to treat women: Give, give, give and expect nothing back, because you are a lowly bottomfeeder whose only purpose in life is to serve Her Nibs.

    No thanks. I’ll pass.
