    Parenting After Divorce

    Whether you are recently divorced or have been for some time, sharing custody of your children can be a difficult task. While divorce is a big part of your child’s life, the factors that will determine his or her ultimate quality of life are still in the hands of each parent. While children can and usually are affected negatively by their parent’s divorce, it’s important to understand that they are not necessarily doomed to be negatively impacted forever.

    There Are Different Options for Co-Parenting

    Parents who separate will need to have a plan for deciding how their children will be cared for and where they will live or spend time. This plan can be called a time-share plan, a parenting plan, or an agreement about visitation and child custody.

    Pay Attention to Your Child’s Needs

    Children respond differently to the separation and/or divorce of their parents. You know your children the best. Remaining open to talking to your children and giving them a lot of understanding and nurturing during this time is imperative. It’s important to remember children go through different stages in dealing with their grief.

    Helping your children cope with your separation

    Understanding the feelings your child is going through not only allows you to help them cope with their emotional pain, but displays the needs your child has, which may help both parents decide who he or she should spend the majority of their time with, at least immediately.
