Divorce is tough on kids, no matter their age or whether they still live with you. An adjustment period for all involved helps minimize the hurt and overall impact of the divorce on your children. Separation and divorce are a part of life and sometimes the best option available to move on. Make the transition with a few tips from us at Miley Law divorce attorneys in Las Vegas. You can’t control all aspects of your divorce, but here are a few factors that you can control in order to make the best of a difficult time.
See the Bigger Picture: Sometimes parents stay together for the sake of the children, hanging on until the kids become adults or move out of the house. Two parents constantly bickering and visibly unhappy are not better than two separate, happy parents. Remember that as difficult as the divorce process is for everyone, it could be better in the long run. Your children may struggle having a separated family at first, but seeing you become a happier person will help them realize that the divorce was better for you; it’s made you happier and in turn a better parent.
Give Yourself Time to Grieve: A grieving process happens during and after a divorce. Remember patience during times when you feel anger or depression. Your children can move on when they see that you can, too.
Remain Civil with Your Ex: The more you can remain cordial and work together to finalize the divorce, the smoother the whole transition will be. Your children will be watching your interactions with your ex, and being friendly and cooperative is much easier for them than seeing you constantly fighting.
