Divorce Step by Step: The Impact on Kids & Discipline
Posted by: Sue Atkins
Separation and divorce are traumatic events for families.
Under such pressure and stress your energy for putting boundaries around your kids can seem like a step too far as you are so tired, but keeping your discipline consistent can really help your children cope as it gives familiarity and structure to their lives when so many other things are changing.
In this video I talk you through my ideas to help you.
Talking & more importantly listening and being there for your children at this time of huge change is important.
I created my ‘Divorce Journal for Children’ to help children express, explore and understand some of the strong emotions that they may be feeling and to help them process the divorce for themselves.
Keeping a Journal is a very simple, but powerful way to support children.
As caring adults, we can help by simply acknowledging & listening to how a child may be feeling, without trying to “fix it”.
This Journal is designed to support open and honest communication and to help children feel heard, understood and supported during a time of great upheaval.
