Helping Your Children Cope With Divorce

NEW! Welcome to Talking to Your Kids About Divorce, brought to you by the team at Beech Acres Parenting Center! In this course, you’ll be given a brief introduction to talking to your children about divorce and how to keep them informed throughout the process.

Sometimes, during divorce, we temporarily lose the ability to parent well. Like any other life-changing event, divorce can be dealt with in a positive way and can result in emotional growth. Over the next few weeks, we will share valuable information to help you navigate this difficult time on your parenting journey. The topics we will be covering include telling your kids about your divorce, working through custody, and tips for successful co-parenting. Parents, you love your children dearly. These tips will help you continue to show your children that you love them even and especially during this most difficult transition.

This series is based on the work of the late Sharon James, a parenting expert who spent 18 years at Beech Acres Parenting Center helping build stronger families. Sharon helped parents find their own strengths to guide them through their most difficult times, especially through her work with divorced parents; which was her true passion.
