Divorce is a disappointing end to a marriage. It can be devastating for the people involved, most especially for children.
Married couples often find it difficult to explain their current state to their children and oftentimes, they worry about how their separation could affect their children negatively.

Children can survive divorce. I’ve seen a handful of children who walk into my office while they’re dealing with their parents’ divorce and I acknowledge them to be very resilient individuals.
For parents, the goal is simple: your children can survive divorce, but they cannot do it alone.
This is how you help your kids survive divorce.
