When parents decide to separate, they frequently have questions about how/when/where to tell their children and the developmentally appropriate language to use. Often parents believe that their children "won't notice" the change at first, or will accept an explanation that one parent is on an extended trip. This can lead to an escalation in anxiety for children, as they are sponges and pick up on EVERYTHING.
We help parents think proactively about how to navigate the process of separation and divorce while simultaneously prioritizing the emotional security and resilience of their children. We continue to offer support as families face new challenges, such as how to co-parent effectively, potentially introduce new partners, and manage the logistics of two homes, all while keeping children’s wellbeing front of mind.
