Children of Divorce

Children of Divorce

It is better for a child to grow up in two healthy households rather than one toxic household.

Children of divorce are more successful when both parents are involved in their life and can provide structure and consistency. It’s often difficult to remember that divorce is an adult issue and children should be protected from hearing all the negative things about their parents. When a child hears you insult or put down their other parent, it can lead to feelings of personalization and blame.

Children who are experiencing difficulties with adjusting to divorce or separation often display splitting behaviors. This is when children attempt to play parents against each other. It can become problematic when parents start taking their child’s word over the adult’s word. They may also experience lying, emotional outbursts and tantrums, and defiance when asked to comply with requests.
