Breakups are almost never easy, even for those not in the relationship themselves. This is especially true for kids of divorced parents. A popular Reddit post shows texts between a teen and her dad who are in this exact situation. Their wholesome conversation is inspiring others who may be going through something similar.

The post comes from a man who is getting a divorce from his wife. Based on what I’ve gathered from this exchange, it seems he has two kids: a 15-year-old stepdaughter and a 2-year-old biological daughter.
