Strong feelings of bitterness between the parents can develop in divorces that involve child custody. These strong feelings can boil over and negatively affect children. Because of the damage they can do, minimizing the effects of divorce on children is important.
Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/03/2020 -- A fundamental tip to remember is not to speak negatively about the other parent when the children are around. The well-known adage "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" is worth bearing in mind.
The children may need to learn to embrace the new family dynamics during this challenging time. Refrain from complicating matters further for them by attempting to make them decide which parent is the right choice. In most cases, both parents are necessary for the child and the child should be able to make decisions about the changes in the relationship with both parents on their own.
While the children's health is very critical, parents should remember that they are also a priority. Parents are better able to help children express their feelings by keeping a supportive disposition towards the other parent, taking care of themselves, and not allowing tension to become overwhelming.
