Communication During Divorce

Ever wonder what to tell children when you are getting divorced? Do you have a difficult ex and the children are in the middle? How do you handle and satisfy your own emotions without affecting your children?

Divorce is a difficult time for everyone in the family. Handling your own emotions is sometimes hard enough, then there are all the arrangements that need to be made and how can you support your children through this too? Children often take personal responsibility in some way. They think it is their fault, they take on “roles” to meet their needs eg. Achieving to get their parent’s attention, become a pleaser or over responsible to get their parent’s love, playing one parent up against the other. Children need both a male and female role model and their love and acknowledgement to develop a balanced perspective of themselves and others.

On this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Develop your children’s ability to interpret and manage their situation regardless of what is happening eg. how to manage 2 sets of house rules and parenting styles
  • Understand how to help your children satisfy their needs effectively without developing patterns of behaviour that will not serve them as adults
  • How to separate your feelings for your ex from the way you parent your children

Knowing how to communicate effectively with your children in divorced situations has a huge impact on your children’s confidence, performance and your relationship with them, making your life and theirs much easier and happier.
