A Good Divorce from a Child's Perspective

I recently came across this blog by divorce coach Annie O'Neill called Life After Divorce: New Horizons . The blog had some very inciteful and informative quotes so I wanted to share a particular one with all of you in my blog. The blog talks about what a good divorce would look like from the viewpoint of a child. It's a wonderful topic because I genuinely care about helping parents protect their children from the trauma of divorce. Children are one of the biggest blessings we receive in our life. We are responsible for giving all the love, protection and support we can when they need us most.

All we want from our children are to grow up to be emotionally healthy, fulfilled, loved adults living a happy and productive life. This blog is written by a grown adult whose parents were divorced and her experiences.

Here is a brieft synopsis of the 4 things she believes were the reasons for successful parenting under the circumstances of divorce:

1. My parents never spoke in a derogatory way about each other in front of me.

2. My parents split the week 70/30, not 50/50.

3. My parents communicated with each other, never through me.

4. My parents presented a unified disciplinary front.

If you would like to learn more about these tips, please click here to read the full blog post. And, if you feel like sharing what worked for you to help your children through your divorce, we would love to hear about it in our comments section!
