Kids Adjusting To Divorce


Research shows kids adjust to divorce better when parents meet certain conditions. During the process of divorce, many factors feel out of control. However, parents can control how they react to and talk about their co-parents around their children. It is pivotal that parents commit to being respectful toward the other parent for their child’s wellbeing.

Improve the outcome for children experiencing divorce by meeting these conditions:

  • It’s usually best for children to spend 50% of their time with each parent.
  • Parents should live within five miles of each other.
  • Parents must not use kids to relay messages between them; no, “tell your father” this, etc.

For more information on how we can help you best support your child through the process of divorce, consider making a family-parent therapy appointment with us.
