How Divorced Parents Can Become Co-Parenting Pros

Prepare for Emotional Fallout

Our Family Wizard

Divorce is stressful for everyone, including a child. Many children mourn the end of their parents’ marriage for years. Be prepared for the sadness, mood swings, and “acting out” that may come along with these feelings. Co-parented children need understanding and emotional support. Do not be quick to assume the child is misbehaving.

Children will ask questions about the divorce and their changing family dynamic. Give satisfying answers that are true, age-appropriate, and focus solely on one’s own feelings and actions. Instead of saying, “Your mother is making this hard for me,” say, “I am having a hard time adjusting.”
