"Now that we're separated, we argue even more than we did when we were together! It just makes me want to give up and stop trying to work together."
One thing that helps is learning how to fight fair. It takes a lot of effort to develop a healthy co-parenting relationship where you can collaborate with one another as equals instead of being defensive and looking for the next fight.
But think about the end goal. If your effort to stop arguing with your ex leads to a greater sense of security for your kids -- and ultimately to less stress for you -- then it will be worth the effort.
