In recognition of International Child-Centered Divorce Month in January, divorce experts around the world are joining together with a goal. They provide complimentary educational resources for parents. Included are e-books, e-courses, coaching services, video programs and other valuable material. Parents who are contemplating divorce, divorcing or transitioning after divorce can access this information for free at a special website available only in January …
January is the time for new beginnings. There’s a dramatic spike in divorce filings because parents facing divorce frequently wait until after the holidays to tell their children. There are also tax considerations that motivate many to initiate a divorce at this time.
Safeguarding Children From Regrettable Divorce Decisions
International Child-Centered Divorce Month is focused on educating parents about how divorce can affect innocent children. The participating divorce attorneys, mediators, coaches, therapists and parenting experts are there to help. They guide parents in making wiser, more compassionate decisions mindful of the emotional and psychological impact of divorce on children.
Rosalind Sedacca, CDC, who initiated Child-Centered Divorce Month in 2007, sums up the importance of this month-long event. “Our purpose is support, education and mistake prevention. We want to encourage respectful co-parenting, teach effective communication skills, and guide parents away from litigation and toward amicable, and cooperative, mediated solutions whenever possible. We provide better options for parents when breaking the divorce news to their children. We show them how to co-parent more effectively. And we help them make wiser decisions that safeguard their children as a win/win for everyone in the family.”
Sedacca is Founder and Director of the Child-Centered Divorce Network. She is also a Certified Divorce & Co-Parenting Coach. Rosalind is the author of several divorce courses and books including, How Do I Tell the Kids About the Divorce? A Create-a-Storybook Guide to Preparing Your Children — With Love! In addition, she hosts the Divorce, Dating & Empowered Living radio show and podcast.
