Empowering You to Tell Your Kids About Divorce

Book a FREE Clarity Call...

Delicate conversations — doesn't that sound challenging?

Picture this: the air feels heavy with a mix of emotions as you sit down with your children, ready to tell them about your divorce. Your heart races, and you grapple with the enormity of the words you’re about to utter. It’s a moment that tugs at your deepest emotions – the desire to shield them from hurt, the wish to explain without causing confusion.

What your children might be going through right now...

Telling your kids about your pending divorce may be the most difficult conversation you’ll ever have. Even if the announcement isn’t a huge surprise – perhaps you’re already separated or you’ve been arguing constantly – it’s only natural for children to want their parents and their family to stay together. Having to dash that dream is tough.

Problems sleeping
Problems concentrating at school
Bed wetting and anxiety
Lots of crying
Intense clinginess
Feeling physically and emotionally upset and very sensitive/ Inability to regulate emotions
Endless playing of video or computer games/ Need to dissociate from reality
Feelings of being responsible for the divorce
Poor Performance in Academics
Introduction of Destructive Behaviour
Difficulty Adapting to Change

In moments like these, empathy matters most. It’s about providing you with insights and tools to engage in conversations that are not only informative but also deeply compassionate. We’re here to help you navigate through this emotional landscape, ensuring your children’s well-being remains at the forefront.

Heres the bad news

The vast majority of people tell their children about the divorce whilst they are upset which creates a massive trauma in their childrens’ lives. Some people lean on their kids during the divorce or feel a strong need for their love or reassurance. All these actions are detrimental to your children.

Heres the good news

Research shows that when you handle your divorce well, the children adjust remarkably well with the new situation. Telling them well sets up the whole context for the divorce and the context dictates alot about how the divorce will be perceived by them. Separating well is a function of having the right focus, support and careful progression through the stages of transition.

"This is a conversation that children will remember for the rest of their lives. Whilst there's no perfect way to break the news, there are ways to alleviate some of the sting"

M. Gary Neuman - author of Helping Your Kids Cope with Divorce
