On the last day of Resolution's Good Divorce Week I wanted to share our fifth tip to help separating parents help their children.
It is unfortunately far too common to see children brought into arguments and being asked to pick "a side". Children have the right to a relationship with both parents and encouraging blame or making a child pick one parent over the other is likely to cause long term emotional damage to a child and their relationship with both parents. Remind your child they do not have to pick and that both parents love them, even though they no longer love each other. Children say
Please don't make me pick between you I love you both. It makes me sad when I have to chose and I hate it when you say bad things about Mum/Dad as I love them as much as I love you.
