What will my children be going through during the divorce process?

Divorce can be an unsettling and emotional time for children. No matter what age the child, they could feel as if they are in some way to blame.

It is very important to give children constant reassurance that they played no part in your decision to divorce.

They will also be worried about what the future holds – where will they live? Who will they live with? Will they go to the same school? All of these things and more can cause a child to feel very unsettled and their stress levels to build. By encouraging your child to talk about their feelings you can go some way to putting their mind at rest. They may also feel angry or even lonely at times. Some children can spend large chunks of time thinking about their parents getting back together, even after you have been separated for a long time. Re-enforcement of the situation and positivity about the future can help children move on.

If possible, explain the situation to your children as a couple. This helps them to feel that you are both happy with the situation and they are less likely to spend their time worrying about you.
