Divorce is so awful for adults, but it can be even more awful for children to endure. Thankfully, there are things that separating couples can do to minimise any harm or unpleasantness for their children. First, don’t talk badly about the other parent around the children. Second, don’t tell children not to talk to their other parent. Make sure you understand every legal detail. Finally, try to center yourself and not let the divorce spin your emotions out of control.
