Divorce is a horrible nasty sounding word which nobody likes to hear as it brings back bad memories and feelings whenever we hear it. Divorce certainly lives up to its name. D for disastrous, disruptive, disturbing, disappointing, disagreeing, dismissing, dissolving, dividing etc.
Divorce however is much more common these days as more and more couples file for divorce. A divorce can be very distressing as everything has to be taken into consideration especially if there are children involved. Divorce can effect children badly. They may become withdrawn or disruptive at school. Although divorce may be the answer for the parents, divorce is a very difficult situation for a child to adjust to.
After living with both parents it can be so dramatic for them to all of a sudden have only one parent around them. Rules and priorities may change so much that the child feels as though their whole world has been turned upside down. This is when a child can become very argumentative and wants everything their own way. You need to see things from a child’s point of view and put yourselves in their place and then review the situation.
For older children you will be able to talk and discuss matters but for the younger ones who don’t understand they will be much harder to reason with and pacify. However, they say that time is a great healer and you will need to be very patient during the process.
