Almost anybody who is experiencing the end of a significant relationship will find it emotionally challenging, even when, as an adult, you are able to understand what’s happening. But for children, who are less likely to understand what is happening, who tend to take things personally, who attach their sense of self largely to their family unit, and for whom emotions can be powerful, parental separation and divorce can be incredibly overwhelming and confusing. This is especially so when parents are in conflict.

If you are interested in how to help children cope with separation and divorce, please check out my article on my psychology blog site CHILDREN, SEPARATION and DIVORCE: Coping with Parent Wars

Your children need you cope and cooperate in the best way possible, so that they can deal with the breakup in the best way possible.
