A mom from Florida recently praised her ex-boyfriend in an inspiring facebook post, for being a great dad and stressing the importance of peaceful co-parenting.

This is a man who doesn’t pay a dime through the state because when my son needs new clothes, I just call him,” Jessica Singleton of Panama City, Florida, wrote. “This is a man who buys a bundle of kids’ movies on Vudu so even I can enjoy them with my son in my own home. A man who drops off the $45 box of pull-ups at my front door so I don’t have to load him up and go to the store.”

Her Facebook post has since been shared over 137,000 times, sparking a conversation about how parents should work together, even if their own relationship has ended.

Singleton asked other separated parents to “stop giving excuses and come together for your children.”

She does admit that things are not always so easy:

“We went through some really rough times where we did not speak at all,” Singleton said “We just couldn’t be around each other without arguing. We’ve come a long way from a point that was very toxic.”

She and her ex Jon Megason, 27, split last year, and made a decision to be kind to each other for the sake of their 2-year-old boy.

We would extend olive branches where we could,” Singleton said. “I noticed both of us took steps to prevent arguments. We’ve both come up with great coping mechanisms.”

Many applauded Megason for being a good dad, and Singleton for complementing him.

Now that’s what you call a dad,” one woman commented.

Singleton apparently wrote the post one night after cuddling in bed with Pierson, while watching movies that Megason had bought for them.

“I started to think about how nice it was, and it just made me want to brag on him,” she wrote.

Beautiful!
