Telling the Children

Hi all, hope you enjoyed the weekend, I’ll be carrying on this week by answering your questions that I have received. Over the weekend we’ve heard from quite a few people, Andy in Newbury wants to know ‘when should we tell the children that we are getting divorced’.

It’s always best to tell the children in the morning and with both parents present, pick a day when you will both be available all day so you can answer any question they may have. The morning will allow your children to take in the information you have given them without it being rushed, if they don’t have any questions straight away don’t panic as they are most probably just trying to understand what they are being told. Be prepared for them to get upset, it is important you reassure them explaining it is not their fault and that you love them.

They may have quite a few questions through the day and through your divorce process, if possible, try and answer your children’s questions together as a unit so you’re giving them one answer not a varied explanation from two people, be honest and open to what they have asked.

Have a great day and I’ll speak to you tomorrow
