A child psychologist wisely said that “children are like wet cement. Everything that falls on them leaves an impression.” This reminds us that while a divorce is an ending of a marriage between two adults, it is not the end of the family relationship, nor is it possible for children to be unaffected. Divorce, like losing a loved one, ranks as a key stressor for
adults and may make it difficult to be your best parenting self at times during your divorce. If you are going through a divorce, choose your settlement path carefully and consider the Collaborative Process, which focuses on respectful co-parenting, effective communication skills and on the importance of children feeling secure to love and spend time with both
parents. For more information, check out our Collaborative Divorce page or contact us for an appointment.
