I always say to the parents that I work 1-2-1 with that ‘Divorce is a process NOT an event.’
I also say that it’s not the divorce that damages children, but the level of conflict they experience, that can have long term repercussions, even into their own adult relationships, so getting this part of the process is important.
NOT easy – but important.
In this video I give you my ideas to help.
Looking after your children.
Separation and divorce are traumatic events for families.
I wrote this journal for children going through divorce as it is designed 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.
