It is hard to manage the emotional journey that everyone is now going on, alongside the practical aspects to the split, from seeing the children, to managing the family finances. Every family will have a different set of circumstances, the reasons for the split may be tough in themselves, or it could be that the break-up is mutual. Whatever has driven the decision process to this end, we hope that all parties concerned will try and work through things with their children as carefully as possible. Honesty and co-operation between parents can assist kids with what is always going to be a strange and confusing time for them. This month, for our parenting tips linky, we are going to bring you some resources and articles that help you prepare and assist your children if you are going through a divorce, or separating with your partner. We have pulled together anything that provides relevant advice, and tools to provide information both for you and your children including:
- Books that discuss the topic
- Activities that can assist understanding, and
- Advice for you about how to talk to your children about the separation to enable an easier transition.
