Anna Faris opens up about co-parenting after divorce
It's never easy, but it can be done.
Anna Faris has spoken about helping her young son through the break-up of her marriage.
She and husband Chris Pratt went their separate ways last year after ten years together.
They are both filing for shared custody of their five-year-old son, Jack.
Anna reckons the 'key' to getting Jack through this tricky time is to be loving.
"He's surrounded by so much love," she told E! News.
"And I think that we just constantly reinforce what a great kid he is.
She and Chris do try to discipline him when necessary but she added that "the key is surrounding him with a lot of joy and happiness, which he has a ton of."
Chris and Anna announced their separation in a statement last August.
"Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed," it said.
"Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward.
"We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."
