Great Online Advice For Kids About Dealing With Divorce

Posted on June 1st, 2011 by Nikol Hasler 1 Comment

We’re fairly pleased to have stumbled upon Kids Health, a website with all sorts of information for young kids, teens, and parents. It doesn’t have the shiniest design qualities, but you don’t have to worry about being slapped in the face with ad campaigns. It’s all information, and we wanted to share an article we found for kids about divorce.

An exerpt:

“Divorce Is Hard for Everyone
It might sound simple, but it’s not easy for a husband and wife to decide to end a marriage. Often they spend a long time trying to solve problems before deciding to divorce. But sometimes they just can’t fix the problems and decide that a divorce is the best solution. Change is a natural part of life, but when it happens to your family, it is sometimes really hard to deal with.

Sometimes both parents want to divorce, and sometimes one wants to and the other one doesn’t. Usually, both parents are disappointed that their marriage can’t last, even if one wants a divorce — and to live apart — more than the other.”

That’s pretty important for kids, who are used to being the center of the universe, to remember. And it’s important for parents to remember that to a kid, the announcement of a divorce can feel like your parents are trying to ruin your life.

We recommend this website as a great resource, and if your family is dealing with a divorce right now, read the rest of this guide and pass it on to anyone you feel it would help.

  1. If possible, spouses should try and send their child to a counselor during a divorce and following a divorce. A parent should also avoid talking negatively about their spouse in front of the children; this sounds obvious but is still a common problem. If there is a lot of bickering during the divorce, the parents need reevaluate what is most important for their children’s future.
