Courteney should spend less time with men and more time with her daughter!
It’s great to see Courteney Cox making the effort to integrate David Arquette in her new life for the sake of their six-year-old daughter Coco. Even though the couple is separated and Courteney, 46, has been spotted getting cozy with her Cougar Town costar Josh Hopkins, the proud parents were recently spotted with Coco at Disney World. But experts are worried these vacations with the various men in Courteney’s life could be confusing for Coco!
HollyBaby.com spoke exclusively with Dr. Gilda Carle, author of Don’t Bet on the Prince!, and she said vacations like the one with Courteney and David could make it harder for Coco to process that her parents are no longer together!
“Children want to see Mom and Dad come back together under the same roof,” Dr. Carle says. “So I wonder whether they are misleading Coco to think that this is even possible. They should be having long and truthful discussions with their daughter letting her know what the real score is — if they even know it at this point.”
Dr. Carle also thinks its a bad idea for Coco to go on family trips with a new boyfriend like Josh.
“If the young child is not confused enough at this point, this will add to any potential confusion in the future,” she says. “New boyfriends should not be introduced into a child’s life unless or until the relationship is very serious. Also, she won’t know to whom to show her allegiance — ‘Daddy’ or ‘New Boyfriend.'”
It sounds like Courteney should just focus on spending time with Coco and less effort folding the men in her life into her daughter’s!
