In fact, the emotional scars are not only more difficult to see, they are also much more difficult to erase since they can have long-term effects.

    These are some great tips, and I appreciate your advice to let your children know that the divorce is not their fault. My husband and I are going to be divorcing soon, and I want to make sure our kids are OK. I’ll definitely make sure they know that this isn’t their fault at all so they don’t have to carry that weight. Thanks for the great post!

      Thank you for your comment Lillian. It is very important to understand it is not a normal situation for them. They do suffer eventhough sometimes adults cannot see it. Soon we’ll have another post related to divorce because there have been some requests. Take care.

    I would like to use the image you have on the page here (child hanging in the middle of parents) for a PowerPoint presentation on divorce. Would that be alright? I would not be disseminating it.

    Thanks so much,
