Divorce is never an easy thing, and it’s made exponentially more difficult when there are kids involved. They get caught in the middle of what sometimes feels like a war zone. They are shuttled back and forth from one parent to the other, they may have to change schools and friends, and the divorce can leave the entire family in financial distress.
Since children are egocentric, they should be your first consideration when contemplating divorce. They have to know that the decision you’ve made is not their fault and they have done nothing wrong. Help them to understand divorcing is what you believe to be the best step to take for everyone in the family.
