DIVORCE YOUR PARTNER, NOT YOUR KIDS: A practical guide for parents who don't want their children to suffer and how both parents can maintain a loving relationship with them
Most likely we’ve all witnessed children’s hearts being ripped apart as their parents go through the rigors of divorce and their told they’re not allowed to see mum or dad anymore.
Parental divorce disrupts the lives of nearly one in five children, and this is linked to long-term social and economic disadvantages. Evidence also suggests that children living in sole-parent scenarios fail to reach the educational and occupational levels of children where both parents are involved in their lives.
This can possibly lead to depression, anxiety, drug or alcohol abuse and tragically, almost 20% of deaths of children aged 5 to 17 is from suicide (which has nearly doubled in the last 4 years). Latest research also suggests that parents alienated from their children is one of the leading factors for suicide in adults between the ages of 35 to 55.
Children crying and being left distraught as they try to understand why mum and dad don’t love each other anymore. Children withdrawing from their normal everyday life as their world is left in turmoil because their parents are putting their egotistical needs first, without even contemplating the psychological and emotional damage they are inflicting upon their children.
The children are the innocent victims of this situation and will suffer unending amounts of needless emotional pain as their parents use them as they try to enact revenge on their former partner.
Tragically, this is what thousands of children face every single day and it’s disgraceful when it doesn’t have to be this way.

Sadly, these figures are on the rise and in most instances, there will be 2 or more children involved in the divorce process.
But who really suffers the most when a divorce occurs? The wife? The husband? No, it is the children who will be affected most and it can be an extremely emotional time for them.
