Figuring out how to have those tough conversations with kids is the difference between a good parent and a great parent. Few conversations are as difficult as the one in which parents have to sit down and explain to their kids that they are going to divorce. There are ways to help kids adjust and cope with this change in their lives.
Whether kids are elementary school age or teenagers, they will have to cope with and process the change in their parents' marital status. Regardless of their age, it is recommended to be as straightforward as possible without sharing too many details. Encourage any questions or communication from kids about the family law process without over-sharing.
