5 Things You Don’t Know About Divorcing As a Parent

That Could Hurt Your Kids! 

  1. Divorce itself doesn’t hurt children – it’s how parents handle the divorce! Learning mistakes to avoid scarring our children along with effective co-parenting skills makes all the difference.
  1. Confiding in your kids about your divorce drama destroys their childhood! Children are not prepared to handle adult information. Nor should they be parenting their parents. Confide in your coach, therapist, family or friends, instead.
  1. Choosing litigation over mediation can lead you on the wrong path! Litigation is about win/lose – the opposite of how we should address divorce when kids are involved. Work towards a win/win outcome whenever possible. You’ll save money and reduce stress long-term.
  1. Divorced parents are role models for their kids! What are you teaching yours? Are you handling life challenges with maturity and responsibility? Or modeling behavior for your children to see? They look to you for answers.
  1. Your children will hold you accountable! Aggression, conflict, selfish decisions, and alienating decisions lead to angry children of divorce when they’re grown. What will your kids say about how you handled the divorce?

A message from Rosalind …

I launched International Child-Centered Divorce Month in 2007 because I, too, initiated my divorce many years ago in January. I was riddled with anxiety, guilt, shame and fear about the consequences for my 11-year old son.

So I researched, developed and shared success strategies, serious mistakes to avoid and effective co-parenting skills that put children’s emotional and psychological needs first when faced with divorce.

Since then, I founded the Child-Centered Divorce Network, became a Divorce & Co-Parenting Coach, and wrote several e-courses, programs and books, including Anger Management For Co-Parents. I also wrote my signature ebook: How Do I Tell the Kids About the Divorce? My now grown up son wrote the foreword to the book.

I have much to share about doing divorce right as a parent: understanding divorce from your child’s perspective, how to deal with difficult co-parenting challenges, breaking the divorce news to children, questions to ask yourself before making divorce decisions, crucial divorce dos and don’ts – and much more!
