Subject: The most important thing you can do for your child after divorce
Divorce is the death of a family. It may sound dramatic, but that’s how it feels to your child (or children). Everything they’ve ever known has now changed. Children crave structure and order and a family – no matter how dysfunctional – does provide that. Your child knew what to expect. Now that the family has changed, your child will look to you for guidance.
Yet you’re struggling too.
Divorce isn’t just hard on your child; your life has changed as well. Even if you’re going through an amicable divorce, the stress can be overwhelming. In order to be there for your child and to provide them with the kind of guidance they deserve and need, there’s one important thing you need to do…
The best way for you and your child to successfully transition through this challenging time is to find support. Support can come in the form of friends that are there to listen to you and help you navigate living on your own. Support can also come in the form of counselors.
A child who has the ability to speak freely and express their emotions about the divorce without worrying about anyone else’s feelings may be able to manage better. Finally, another opportunity for support is your local church, mosque, synagogue, or temple. Divorce support organizations for children and parents can be a significant help.
Children, like adults, fear change. They will turn to you for guidance and support. At the same time you may not be sure how to provide that guidance because your world is turning upside down as well. Help your child through this trying time by finding support for the both of you. You’ll be able to navigate the new lifestyle and family together. Next time we’ll take a look at how to talk with your child about the divorce. The words you choose are important.Other Details
