Helping Your Children Feel Safe, Secure, and Loved During Your Divorce

Divorce is a difficult time for children. They fear losing the love of one or both parents and the security of their home and established routine. Younger children sometimes feel that they are to blame for the divorce, particularly if they are the subject of a custody fight. Older children may demand to know which parent is responsible. By pointing a finger, one parent can seriously damage the child’s image of the other parent causing a lasting rift in the relationship.
Studies show the most damaging aspect of divorce for children is parental conflict. For children to thrive during and after your divorce, you must do everything you can to reduce the conflict. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
  • Do not criticize the other parent in front of the children. For a child’s healthy development, it is important for him to respect both parents and believe both parents respect each other, even if that is not the truth.
  • Watch your body language, and tone of voice, as well as what you say. Continuing anger or bitterness toward your former partner can injure your children far more than the dissolution itself. The feelings you show are more important than the words you use.
  • Do not discuss finances with the children. Never mention payment or non-payment of support.
