Research shows that three factors help children of any age adjust after divorce:
- having a strong relationship with both parents
- good parenting
- minimal exposure to conflict
No real surprises here.
The challenge for parents is pulling it off in the midst of the financial, legal and emotional turmoil that often accompanies divorce. Children experience divorce in a very different way than their parents. Through counseling you can build skills that will enable you to support your children psychologically, socially and emotionally according to their stage of development.
The adjustment to parenting as a newly single parent can be isolating and challenging. My goal is to help you feel supported, prepared and confident.
