I remember once sitting with clients and asked how the children were coping. They both went into this enormous explanation and criticised the others parenting skills. I suggested that perhaps it may help the children if they were to able to occasionally show the children that they could talk together and go out for tea as a family or similar. The response I received was that they could not be in the same room as each other. Yet here they were talking about their finances. I am sure that they did not mean their finances were more important than their children and they did actually go out for tea on Sunday which was the start of them trying to get along. Now Dad no longer has to wait in the car when he is picking the children up and they are planning a 18 birthday party together. You don’t have to be intermit to be friends for the sake of their children
If you are going to get divorced then make sure you have planned it right for everyone to come out the best they can. Your in-law may still need to be in your life, parents still need to be in children’s lives. Did you know that children become are more grounded when their divorced parents were still able to talk?
We are here to listen and we don’t charge so why not call today and put one step in place.
