A divorce not only has impact on the parties but the children born of the marriage. When you are going through a divorce it is important to not only take care of your own well being, but that of your children as well.
Children sometimes blame themselves for their parents’ divorce. Nothing can be further from the truth. It is important during and after the divorce process that your children understand that both parents love them and will always love them – even when their parents are no longer married.
It is wise to be open with your children when going through a divorce; however you should never disparage the other parent in front of your child. This is never a good idea. Children need to be reassured that both parents love them and will still be there for them even if they are not living in the same household. Take time to reassure your children that the divorce is between the adults and has nothing to do with them.
