Post-divorce: Maintaining a relationship with your children

When you are going through a divorce, things can get heated and unpleasant with you and your former spouse. But one of the most worrying aspects of a divorce is the negative affect it may have on your children and how it might alter the relationship that you have with them.

This blog will give a brief overview on some steps that you can take to ensure that you make the transition as a single parent.

Let them know you care

You and your former spouse may have been so wrapped up in the legal and logistical aspects of a divorce lately that it may have left your children feeling lacking in attention and care. There are going to be a lot of changes for them - some for the better, and others for the worse. So it's important to make quality time a priority for each child.

Think a little deeper

You might find your children withdrawing from a relationship with you. In such a stressful time, you may be tempted to try a quick-fix by buying gifts or appeasing them in another way. But it's important to think a little more about why they might be acting this way and how you can talk to them about salvaging the relationship.

Be collaborative

Try and work with your former spouse on the children's timetables and activities. It's important for the kids to see that the two of you can work together, and that you have the children's best interests at heart.
