How Should We Tell Our Kids About The Divorce?

Telling your children that you are getting a divorce is never easy, but there are things you can do to soften the blow.  You should plan what you are going to tell the children and, if possible, you and your spouse should tell them together.  

 

It is very important to assure your children that the divorce is not their fault and that you love them.  Do your best to answer their questions and let them know that you are there for them if they want to talk about it at a later time.  Children react differently and it is important to keep monitoring how they are doing from time to time.  If the children are having difficulty, you should consider counseling or therapy.
