Dating during divorce effects children
Parents and kids often don't agree on things, but that is part of the circle of life — parents and kids don't stop loving each other or get divorced from each other.
Give kids enough information to prepare them for the upcoming changes in their lives.
Some kids try to please their parents by acting as if everything is fine, or try to avoid any difficult feelings by denying that they feel any anger or sadness at the news.
Although there's no easy way to break the news, if possible have both parents there for this conversation." or "We both love you and are sorry that we have to live apart." Not all kids react right away.Let yours know that's OK, too, and that you can talk when they're ready.The discussion should fit the child's age, maturity, and temperament.
But it should always include this message: What happened is between mom and dad and is not the child's fault.
Thousands of kids experience the stress of divorce each year.
