Children of Divorce

Divorce can be an extremely difficult transition for everyone involved, however it is the children of divorce that are the biggest victims more often than not. Divorce can be a difficult concept for a child to comprehend and most do not know how to deal with it. The two parent paradigm is something a child is used to and can act as a symbol of stability. When this paradigm comes to an end, children and teens find it difficult to cope with the sudden shift and can react in potentially harmful behavior.

If children of divorce are not handled in a careful, precise manner they could act out in a behavior that is detrimental to others as well as themselves. Divorce is a major life transition and needs to be managed delicately and professionally.  It is a parent’s responsibility to ensure a nurturing healthy environment for their children. Like most life altering transitions divorce can be a difficult point of conversation with family especially the children involved. Sometimes it helps to be able to discuss your issues with someone qualified and trained to deal with these types of situations.
