Make sure your child feels safe and secure

Kids of different ages will react in a variety of ways to the news that their parents are divorcing. If there has been a lot of fighting at home, some children may actually feel relieved. However, other kids may feel guilty, upset, or even angry about the situation. Divorce means that their lives are going to change and that can be a scary prospect for kids of all ages. 

It is important for kids to know that divorce is not their fault and that they did not do anything to cause the divorce. It is even more important for them to know that they are still loved and that both parents will be there to listen to them and support them through the process. 

Keeping kids in their routines is a crucial part of making them feel secure. Make sure that you and your partner have a plan for who will take them to school, get them from soccer practice, or attend activities that they are participating in. If children are older, having a posted schedule that establishes who will take care of these immediate needs can provide comfort. When there is little disruption in their routines, children may feel more secure about the divorce and about what will happen in the future.

Talk to your children together

Plan what to say and present a united front. Although this might be difficult for some couples who are divorcing, sitting down together with your children can be a positive experience for everyone. First, it will show the kids that you made the decision together and minimize the blame they may want to put on one parent. Second, it demonstrates that you two are committed to working together to ensure the kids are well cared for, supported, and loved. Finally, it will allow you two to respond to questions together, so they do not receive conflicting information. 

If you are able to work together, then divorce mediation may be an effective way to resolve your divorce. At the beginning of the process, you will work with a certified mediator, like RIta Ghose, to determine what your goals are for your family. Then, with the help of the mediator, you and your partner will craft a separation agreement that addresses marital property, alimony, custody, and child support that realizes your goals.
