Lots of couples say they "stay together for the kids." But, Courteney Cox says your kids will be better off if you break up!!
The says Cougar Town star reveals that her divorce from David Arquette has made them both better parents to their 7-year-old daughter, Coco.
According to Momma Cox, when they were still married, she and Dave felt like they had to hide their honest feelings from each other. But now, all that's changed!
"Now we're separate we're able to talk about all our resentments and the things we should have listened to each other on. We kind of know where it went wrong, and how we felt ourselves drifting apart. So now we have this really great, open relationship. We speak to each other all the time; if we don't see each other in a week it's a big deal. And we're better parents to Coco. We're more patient with each other."
The actress admits that she's not sure how long this whole "being really awesome at parenting" thing is going to last:
"I'm probably not as good a disciplinarian as David, but I relate to her emotions. Mind you, I'm frightened of the teen years. Coco's got a very strong will, and I'm a little afraid of that."
ALL teens are jerks.
Don't worry Courteney, a teenage tude has NOTHING to do with bad parents!
