How to Answer Your Child’s Questions about Your Divorce

Even though you may think the divorce is difficult for you, it is even more difficult for your child. In the heat of the moment, many parents often forget to give their children the positive reinforcement they need to get through the process as unscathed as possible. If you listen to your children, they are likely to ask a lot of questions. Learn to answer the top questions to put them at ease.




Most people associate the question “why?” with three-year-old children. However, children whose parents are going through a divorce are also likely to ask this question many times. They want to know why their parents are no longer in love or why their parents have to live apart. These can be difficult questions to answer without laying blame. To answer these questions, give age-appropriate answers that tell your child only what he wants to know and nothing more. If he wants more information, he will ask another question.


Is It My Fault?


Children tend to see themselves as an extension of their parents. If their parents no longer love each other and will be living apart, children have a tendency to think it is their fault. They may feel they did something to make you so mad you couldn’t stand each other anymore. Reassuring your child this is not the case is extremely important. Make sure your child’s other parents is on the same page as you. If you both tell your child it is not his fault, he is more likely to believe it.


What Will Happen to Me?


Children often worry about what will happen to them when their parents split up. One of the best things parents can do is put their differences aside and make decisions for the children. Knowing what to tell them when you talk to them about the divorce initially will let them know that you care about what happens to them and have considered them in the process.

Divorcing with children is even more difficult on the children than it is on the adults. Knowing what to expect from your children will help you put their minds’ at ease and help them understand the process. The most important thing is to make sure your children know that you both still love them very much

Howard was my lawyer during my bankruptcy and he was fantastic. Understanding, non judgemental honest and upfront… all the things we hear that lawyers aren’t. Even almost a year after my case was done with he corresponded with me through e-mail and over the phone with my questions. I would recommend him to anyone.
