Tips for Helping a Child or Teen Through a Divorce

Although it is impossible to totally protect your child from getting hurt during a divorce, there are some things that you can do which will greatly help your child adjust to this difficult time. These include:

  • Avoiding speaking of your spouse in a negative or hostile way while around your children
  • Trying to keep conflict between you and your spouse from occurring in front of the children
  • Reducing the disruption to your child’s normal routine as much as possible
  • Staying involved in the child’s life
  • Not using your child to communicate information to the other parent
  • Listening to your child and acknowledging their feelings when they express them

These are just a few of the things that you can do to help make the divorce process as painless for your children as possible.
