Divorce as a Teaching Tool for Your Children
One of the major fears of people transitioning through divorce is permanently damaging your children. Divorce actually presents an opportunity to teach your children about healthy relationships and personal happiness. Use these tips to open up conversations with your children.
Open a dialogue with your children. Keep subjects kid-appropriate. Let your children learn and speak about the divorce.
No one likes bullying, even if it’s just repeated. Teach your children to avoid repeating mean things. Your ex might say things behind your back. Teach your children that repeating harsh words is just bullying by proxy.
Show love and compassion to yourself and teach it to your children. This is a major life change for everyone. Children learn by example.
