Divorce can be especially difficult for children, but attorneys at Rice,
Amundsen, and Caperton in Memphis, Tennessee are ready to help. Below are
a few tips to keep in mind if you have children and are going through a
1.Children may blame themselves. In fact, the
majority do. It is imperative for parents to talk to their children and stress
that it is not their fault..
2.Children may have to cope with a change of schedule. Routine is comforting to all of us, but even more so with children. With a
divorce, there may be different bedtimes, different meal times, or changes in
schedule due to babysitters and childcare. As much as possible, keep your
child’s schedule the same. Keep consistent schedules between both parent’s homes
and this will give your child a sense of security.
3.Children may seem fine on the surface, but there may be hidden signs of
adjustment difficulties. A drop in grades for a
child who has previously done well in school, less interest in activities, and
playing less with friends may all signal an emotional concern that needs to be
addressed. Changes in appetite or sleep patterns may also signal emotional distress.
A previously respectful child may begin to act out at home or at school. Be
alert to changes your child may not be able to express in words. Talk
with your child’s school. The teacher and guidance counselor may be able
to help. Many times there are groups your child can join for kids going
through the stresses of divorce.
4.Children need to be shielded as much as possible from the drama divorce can
cause. There are things you shouldn’t do
in front of your children that will lessen their fear and insecurity. Don’t
argue in front of your child, or tell them about your problems. Avoid putting
the other parent down to your child. They love both parents and should not have
to choose sides with their loyalty.
5.As much as possible, keep your child’s room the same, even if divorce has
brought a move to a new home. Keeping the same
surroundings brings comfort to all of us, as adults find when they bring along
familiar things when they travel. Don’t let divisions of property include the
children’s furniture and belongings.
6.If the family owns a pet, it should remain in the home with the child if
possible. Children need the attention that a pet gives to them as
much as adults do. Losing a pet at the same time they are losing time with one
of the parents can cause additional stress to an already stressed child.
