Over the years I have seen many children and teens of divorced parents. I have observed that many times the divorce does not stop the parental fights. In the chaos of the divorce many parents forget that the primary concern is now their children. So I have decided to share what many kids want you to know.
When I was growing up my favorite show on television was the Brady Bunch. “There’s a story…” I can still sing the song and hear the tune in my head. I never stopped to wonder where the ex’s were in this blended family. It clearly did not portray the reality of blending 2 families because the ex’s were not around and the children did not have 2 homes that they went back and forth to.
I received an email citing January is the month where the divorce rate is the highest. For many kids this was not on the new year’s resolution list of things to deal with. And yet it happens and they feel powerless to do anything about it. Parents can actually help their children get through this or they can add to the general chaos.
