When you deal with a divorce you are not only dealing with the past, and present, but the future as well. Yet, what should you do in order to make sure that your child is not negatively impacted by your divorce?

Children, Not Assets

When you are going through a divorce at the end of the day you are no longer in a relationship, but are now a single individual once again. However, unlike before, you now have responsibilities that you must deal with, care for, and take care of in any which way possible, such as your children. However, children understand and deal with divorce differently than their parents, or other individuals that are involved with it. Many times children falsely believe that they are the reason why their parents have separated, which usually is not the case at all.

Helping You and Your Child

In order to make sure that your children understand that your divorce was due to your relationship issues, and not them is extremely important. Children need to know that there is stability still left within their lives. They are going from coming home, having dinner, and going to bed with both of their parents in the same house each night to having to pack a bag in order to go see another. However, there are a few things that you can do as a parent to make sure that your child’s needs are met during, and after a divorce. Some include, but are not limited to:

  • Informing your child’s school so they can beware of any behavioral changes that may affect your child’s achievement in school, or their extracurricular activities.
  • Make sure to put both you and your spouse on emergency contact forms to make sure that both parents respond to their child.
  • Inform both parents of the child’s activities, and achievement in order to make sure that they feel loved, and appreciated.
