Navigating 3 Awkward Post-Divorce Situations With Your Children
During the divorce experience, children are forced to face the reality of their new situation. After many marital disagreements witnessed, they are forced to deal with the fact that their parents are no longer together; that they will inevitably be faced with the reality of two homes.
However, after they come to terms with the logistical issues related to child custody, they have to come to grips with how it affects things during the course of the year. They may wonder how all of this affects their school life, holidays, birthdays, games, plays, concerts, and other occasions that may draw the attention of each parent.
In this excellent blog posting, Daniel Pearce writes that these situations can breed a level of social awkwardness that is forced upon children, and many divorced co-parents can make it worse with outbursts and public squabbles. This is why it is important to keep in mind the child’s perspective during these events, so that you can keep your child’s best interests in mind.
