As difficult as divorce is for a couple, it’s worse for the children involved. There are steps to take to ensure they don’t become pawns in a game and will not leave them feeling as if they too were in an emotional battle. This includes making sure they understand unconditional love and feel it from both parties. Do not confide in them; a child is not your peer and don’t allow them to feel they have to choose. Custody must be worked out between adults, and children have the ability to adjust to divorce, given the right parenting help.
