Help your kids thrive when divorce is changing their lives

Children just trying to make it through their parents' divorces have to focus on adjusting to their new ways of life. This is challenging even in the best of circumstances. It is imperative that both parents take time to ensure the kids have what they need to thrive despite the major changes taking place.

It isn't always easy to figure out what your kids need from you in these circumstances. It can be downright difficult if your child isn't able to express their feelings and needs. When this happens, you will have to pay attention to the nonverbal signs they are showing. From there, you can try to work out a plan to help them cope.

One particular issue that might come up is stress, which can have negative impacts on the children that manifest as behavioral issues. As a parent, there are several ways that you can reduce the amount of stress the children experience. Make sure that you don't allow them to see you and your ex fighting. Instead, handle contentious matters privately with your ex.

Another problem that can develop is if children don't feel like they fully belong in either home. Trying to help them adjust to life in two homes can help. This might mean that you and your ex need to work as a team to show the kids that both parents are there for them.

It can also help if you set a solid parenting plan for these sticky situations. This sets a firm standard that is universal between both homes. It also lets the kids know what to expect as far as scheduling goes.
