Divorce

Whether it is the latest breakup of a Hollywood couple or reports of skyrocketing statistics, divorce is a common news item. These stories are scary to children, not so much for what they say about the Hollywood couple, but rather what it might mean for mom and dad. With the divorce rate at 50%, it may be difficult to convince your child that he has nothing to fear, but you could alleviate some of his fears by talking with him and sharing some simple facts. Even though some couples who argue do end up getting a divorce, it doesn’t mean that every time mom and dad argue they are thinking about getting divorced. Above all, make sure your kids understand that when two people divorce each other, they aren’t divorcing their children. Let your children know that when divorces happen, both parents still love and will continue to care for their kids.
