Reassuring the kids in the wake of a divorce

On Behalf of | Jun 19, 2015 | Child Custody

Kids can feel very confused, distressed and emotionally taxed-out when their parents get divorced. For a child, their parents divorcing can sometimes feel like their whole world as they know it is collapsing. It is important for divorcing parents to keep this in mind when going through their divorce and to do what they can to help smooth the transition for their kids and to ensure that their kids various needs, including their emotional needs, are being met post-divorce.

One thing that can have a big impact on kids when their parents divorce is what their parents say to them. Thus, when divorcing, it can be very important for parents to be properly reassuring towards their kids. Recently, there was a Huffington Post article on this topic. In the article, the Huffington Post posted some of the promises/reassurances that their bloggers and readers who had gotten divorced said that they made to their kids. The listed promises/reassurances touch on a variety of different topics, including: communication, respecting the child’s relationship with the other parent, always loving the child and always being there for the child.

What do you think are some of the most important things for a divorcing parent to say to their child?

Another thing that can have a very big impact on children when their parents divorce is what sort of child support and child custody arrangements are ultimately put in place. Thus, it is very important for divorcing parents to do what they can to help ensure that such arrangements are properly aligned with their child’s best interests. This includes keeping their child’s best interests at the top of their mind during proceedings and negotiations involving child support and child custody and taking proper steps and actions during such proceedings/negotiations.

Child support and child custody can be very complex legal issues, so divorcing parents may sometimes be unclear as to how best to protect and promote their child’s best interests in proceedings/negotiations regarding these issues. Divorce lawyers can provide Texas divorcing parents with guidance when it comes to this.
