Divorce: What to tell the children?

Being a great parent during the separation and divorce process is not easy.  What to tell your children at the start, middle, and beyond the divorce is equally hard because you cannot predict what question a child will ask, what the child may have heard from someone else, etc.  But parents can do their best to be prepared, if they are willing to do the work. 

One step is to pick up literature – some of the best does not have to be expensive (follow the link below) and many good resources already are at your local library.

    Divorce can be extremely traumatic to families, especially children. My children’s picture book, Living With Mom, Spending Time With Dad takes us through a myriad of emotions that two children, Stephen and Alex, experience through this tumultuous period. Young Alex especially gives an extremely candid and honest account of the day-to-day trauma, the hostility and at times the many poignant memories that he has. Living with Mom, Spending Time with Dad also addresses the concerns and anguish of being torn between two parents. Throughout the story there is that underlying hope that everything will turn out alright and everyone will be back in their original comfort zone. This book is truly endearing and tugs at your heart strings, particularly with the fervent prayer from Alex that God will make everything alright again.
