At the end of the day, you want to be able to look at your children and see confident individuals who are able to stand on their own two feet and enjoy their lives. If divorce is handled with this view in mind, the “divorce don’ts” will be easier to keep at the for front.
During divorce, the feeling of distress is a common side effect of any divorce – especially for kids, however, this very common emotion can develop into lasting emotional scares when:
- Parents have long and messy custody battles.
- One parent try’s to involve the child or expects him/her to take sides.
- One parent openly talks down or belittles the other in front of the kids.
