22 May Children and Divorce
The process of separation from your partner and divorce is never easy, especially when children are involved.
Breaking the news of your separation to children can be an extremely distressing process and due to the heightened emotions it is important that you choose your words carefully so that your children understand what is happening and how things will be different moving forward.
We have previously touched on this issue and provided a list of services that can be of benefit to you and your children during this process in one of our blog, ‘Hey Kids we need to chat’.
In addition to accessing support services, we suggest parents who want to be informed about some of the impacts of separation on children consider watching the following YouTube videos:
