How to discuss divorce with your children is a question I get asked frequently as a Child Custody Attorney in Orange County CA. This question comes from parents contemplating filing for a divorce. Depending on the ages of your children you will need to find an effective way to explain the changes that will be occurring once you file for divorce. It may be helpful to ease your children into the idea of the divorce, rather than spring it on them the last minute.
Every member of your family will cope with divorce differently. It is important that you monitor the behavior of younger children. If you notice any extreme changes in personality it may be an indication that your child needs to speak with a therapist.
The most important thing is to explain to your children that it is not their fault that the divorce is happening. Children often experience guilt or feel they are to blame for their parents divorcing. Discussing with them that although there will be changes, the love and relationship they share with their mother and father will remain the same.
