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.

 

Why?

 

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

Alberto is an outstanding lawyer. He went the extra mile with me, as I had to go through eight (!) rounds of negotiation to get an MSA + Parenting Plan approved. If there’s such a thing as “winning” in divorce, then Alberto made it happen for me.

Having worked as an investigator and later in my career as a counselor for divorces gave me plenty of exposure to Lawyers. Therefore, I had a lot of resistance and fears of working with any lawyer. Therefore, I did thorough research and found Howard Iken. I must say that I have nothing but appreciation for him. His knowledge, expertise, and support are priceless. First of all he does not sell you a dream, in other words he is upfront and honest at all times. He has also been extremely assertive and a big advocate for my daughter and my rights as a father in the court room. Outside of the court room he has been extremely supportive, accessible, and informative at all times. In fact many times I would send him an email with a question and would be surprised to receive a response right away. After my past experiences working in the system he has shown me that there are excellent lawyers that truly are there for their client’s best interest.
