Prioritizing Children’s Interest First During a Divorce
Most of the relationships in our life do not really last. Maybe this is just part of human nature to be able to grow further from one another or this might be brought by the circumstances of life that do not make it possible for them to continue with the relationship.
The sad part of the divorce is that children may get affected for they do not understand yet this kind of happening and they are still young to comprehend it. For sure, your children’s life will be a lot more different from before and this will happen in a major way. It is best that you are well aware what are the effects of the divorce to your children and what could this mean towards the small children and here are some of them.
First is to try to be civil with each other and not to feel any anger. IF possible, try to prevent flaring up your anger in front of your children. If you must argue with each other then try to find a place where your children is not going to see you.
In this way the children will not know that you are fighting since if they see you fighting they might imitate it with their friends. This will make them panic and be able to experience a horrible experience from what they see from their own eyes. For this to be avoided you need to keep a routine where your kids will not interpret your fighting as something to be traumatic and an emotional abuse and you can explain it to them right in an instant.
Lastly, you need to let the school be informed about the current situation. OF course, you do not want that the education of the kids will be affected because of your divorce process or what you are going through. There are kids that gets bullied at school because their parent got divorced and you do not want this to happen. You need to let the school know more about your current situation and let them learn more how your child is reacting to the situation. Sometimes, your child may be left out and they do not know whom they can talk, that is why the teacher may be of great help once you notify the school of your current situation.
