Living Arrangements For Children When The Parents Are Divorced

Husband and Wife Not Speaking to Each Other

Ways You Can Help Your Child Cope With Divorce

  • Be involved – Even though you are going through a lot, don’t pull away from or ignore the needs of your children. They need your involvement and presence more than ever.
  • Keep negativity and blame away from your children. Discuss your hurts, pains, and circumstances with people who can handle and even help your situation.
  • Don’t make your child pick sides.
  • Keep daily routines as much as possible.
