How to Help Your Children

Parents are always keen to know how to protect their children from emotional harm when they are tackling divorce, separation, a co-parenting issue, or a dispute directly concerning the child (such as where a child should live, what contact the child should be having with the other parent or financial provision). 

When parents receive advice to, for example, protect the children from adult issues, avoid using the children as messengers or refrain from arguing in front of the children, this can initially feel like fairly obvious advice. 

Surprisingly, however, this “obvious” advice can be difficult for parents to implement in practice.  Yet exposing children to parental conflict is one of the main risk factors leading to children suffering. 

If you want to help your children, getting the “obvious” stuff right is a great place to start.
