Children’s Voices Matter
In dealing with their loss, children can struggle as well.
Separation isn’t harmful to children … it’s the high level and ongoing conflict between parents that can negatively impact children.
Children will always benefit when both parents are involved and co-operating in their lives.
Children’s behaviour and feelings of self-worth are directly connected to the level of parental conflict.
Some questions parents might like to ask themselves can include:
- What has been the experience of separation for your child/ren?
- How have they expressed their losses?
- What behaviour or emotional changes have you noticed in them?
