Mayim Bialik Opens Up About Parenting After Divorce

Divorce is a scary word–a word that sends chills down everyone’s spine, regardless of your own relationship status. This is why we’re really glad Mayim Bialik recently opened up about what it’s like being divorced as a mom. Mayim has now been divorced from her ex-husband Michael Stone for three years–together, they co-parent their two sons.

Mayim recently posted a video of herself on her website Grok Nation and YouTube talking about her divorce. She admitted how it’s not a fun way to raise kids–but that we endure co-parenting post-divorce because adults need to tend to their kids first (so stop kvetching already):

“Being divorced is not a fun way to raise kids. Things my ex did when we were married that annoyed me then, annoy me still.

My kids get one chance to be kids and this is their situation. I have to put them first because I’m their mom and he’s their dad.” 

What I appreciated most, however, is the fact that Mayim made it a point to say that she and her ex don’t badmouth each other, and still make sure to spend holidays together as a family. Because at the end of the day, being divorced doesn’t mean you aren’t a family anymore:

“I’m a working mom and every night when I’m working, he’s the one feeding them dinner, giving them a bath, reading them goodnight stories, tucking them in and making sure they sleep well.

Divorce isn’t the end of a family. It’s the end of a nuclear family. It’s the end of a family living in one house.”
