When children become involuntarily involved in their parents’ divorce, their world is dramatically shaken. It is not unusual for children going through a divorce to become anxious, sad, afraid, and even angry. Sometimes the children feel responsible for causing the divorce and inevitably have fantasies that their parents will, somehow, stay together. By placing their children’s well-being above their differences, parents can minimize the trauma their divorce might have on their children. Effective counseling for the parents and their children can assist each family member in adjusting and growing to their new definition of their “family”.
