Thabiso Sikwane opened up about how she and DJ Fresh make parenting work, even though their relationship didn't.

Taking to her social media timeline recently, the radio personality encouraged mothers to not be hard on themselves and prompted fathers to show up for their children.

Thabiso said she was appreciative of how she and her estranged husband were able to parent their four children well even though they no longer live together.

“It is so overwhelming sometimes, especially when you are doing it on your own. Hang in there. I don't think anybody has a formula. Yes there are books, classes, and things you can do to equip yourself, but you know yourself, you know your limitations, you know your capabilities and you find your own rhythm. Pray as well, pray for wisdom on how to raise them.

“I don't know where I'd be as a parent without praying for wisdom. By His grace, we've been able to raise four amazing children and it's such a blessing that even after our divorce we are parenting. We are both present in our children's lives. I don't use the term coparenting because nothing has changed in terms of how we see our roles as parents and I'm really grateful for that.”

In February 2022, Thabiso and DJ Fresh announced the end of their marriage of 20 years, revealing they were in the process of a divorce.

The pair released a joint statement on social media in the form of a video saying they were going to remain friends and stay in business together.

“We've been separated most, if not all, of lockdown and we are finalising the finer details. We still have each other's backs. I think people are expecting drama but there will never be drama between us because we'll always love each other,” DJ Fresh said.
