When going through a divorce, families oftentimes contemplate how it will affect their children. Counseling is a way in which children can find a voice for their feelings and a way of coping with everything that is changing in their lives. However, not everyone wishes to put their children through counseling, whether it is coming from one parent, both parents, or a third party; can it be forced upon them?
During the Super Bowl this year, a commercial presented by NO MORE focused on ending domestic violence and sexual assault. The spot centered on a call from a woman to 911, pretending to order a pizza to escape the violence she was experiencing in her home. The abuse she experienced is evident in the scenes portrayed throughout the house, items strewn about and walls punched-in.
Divorce is hard on families. It means big changes, sometimes moving and almost always confusion for children. Children want to know they are safe and that mommy and daddy are going to be there for them. It gets harder to keep up a comfortable routine when families split and this can be hard for children to understand. This is why it is important for you to discuss divorce with your children and what they can expect.
