What about the kids?

On Behalf of | Nov 1, 2021 | Co-Parenting

Divorce doesn’t affect kids AS MUCH if they are not placed in the middle of warring parents.

What does your child know at this point?

  • Discuss with your spouse how you will let the kids know about the divorce
  • Talk to your child together — let them know you are still their mom and dad
  • Remember to be consistent in what you tell your child
  • Make sure to ask if they have questions

Determine at this point:

  • Does your child need counseling?
  • Do you notice changes in behavior, agitation, loss of sleep?
  • Is your child withdrawing from peers?
  • Have they asked to see a counselor?

Not every child will benefit from counseling.

  • Everyone has their own way of working through their problems
  • Best to let them know counseling is an option and resource that can be used
  • Counseling should be sought out when requested
  • Counseling should be sought out when you notice the child is not able to handle the situation
