How can a parent protect their children during and after divorce? Divorce is not a single event but a lifelong journey. There will be changes and many u turns along the way. It will demand a different kind of parenting than you will ever know.You will need a lot of compassion and wisdom throughout this journey.
If your children can express themselves to both parents. They will let you know that you have become "a set of parents and "two" set of problems."
They want your cooperation, compassion and human understanding. They don't want to hear it and they would like for you to work it out with each other. They do not want to feel obligated to choose sides. They suffer greatly because parents cannot overcome their issues with the other parent. Event hough it's not fair!
In fact, it's not fair to them.
If parents show that they love and care for children responsibly, it will help them feel more secure as they process the divorce.
Children, they need to know that you will be there for them.
