The 33-year-old took to Instagram on Friday to share a photo of himself holding hands with the former couple’s youngest child as he carried a large parachute.
Alongside the photo, Dakota wrote: “BE WHO YOU WANT THEM TO BE.
“Parenting is by far the hardest job in the world (if you do it right). The hardest part isn’t the responsibilities of it. It’s the “leading by example” part.
“Kids are always watching. They’re like sponges absorbing every aspect that they are exposed to.”
The father of two concluded: “So be who you want your kids to be. Surround yourself by people you’d be ok with your kids being.
“IT ALL MATTERS.”
Bristol, 30, and Dakota were married from 2016-2018, while they share daughters Sailor, five, and Atlee, four, together.
The former Teen Mom OG star is also the mother to 12-year-old son Tripp with ex Levi Johnson.
BRISTOL ADMITS SHE NEEDS ‘HELP’
Earlier this month, Bristol admitted she needs “help” with her three kids as she revealed on social media she wants to hire a nanny.
Taking to her Instagram Story, the MTV star admitted: “I am looking for some sort of nanny/personal assistant… and it’s so pathetic, but I really actually am.
“I have way too much going on and I need to get organized in order to level up my businesses – get things all dialed in. I need some help. I’ve got three kids and a million places to be constantly – a million different things going on.
“So I definitely need help in order to level up everything in life.”
Bristol then went on to explain the type of person she is looking for, which is someone that “lives in the Austin area,” “can pass a background check” and is “super reliable and trustworthy.”
The 30-year-old also added she is looking for a person who is “savvy with social media and can keep up with all my pages.”
While Bristol and Dakota have not said they’re giving their relationship another chance, some fans have speculated they rekindled their romance.
Not only did the exes reunite last month to celebrate Sailor’s graduation, but Bristol and their daughters also joined up with Dakota to celebrate his birthday.
Bristol even smiled as she kept her arm tightly around her ex’s waist.
She then wished Dakota the “happiest birthday” with a sweet video of everyone singing to him.
