Reducing the impact of divorce on children

In an ideal world, all children will experience a childhood in which both of their parents are happily married and able to raise their children without conflict. However, the reality is that relationships can fall apart or become toxic. Sometimes marriages become so broken that going through a divorce is in the best interests of the children.

If you believe that getting divorced is the best option for your children, you may also be concerned about the impact that a divorce will have on your children. The first year after divorce tends to have the biggest emotional impact on a child. The following are some of the ways that you can reduce the impact in the crucial months during and after a divorce.

Be consistent

You and your divorcing spouse should have a coherent strategy for raising your children. If the children get treated differently by each parent or if discipline is inconsistent, issues will arise.

Don't put the kids in the middle

A divorce is between the two parents. You should try to limit how often you talk about divorce issues in front of your children, and you should make sure that they never feel as though they are put in the middle.

Make time for each child

Make sure that each child gets quality time with you and that they feel free to talk about anything that is worrying them.

If you are going through a divorce as a parent and you are worried about the impact that this could have on your children, it is important that you make sure to plan ahead.
