When children disagree with a divorce

Divorce can be a tricky process to approach for all sorts of reasons. Often, parents have uncertainty about certain aspects of the divorce process, such as how child custody will be split up or some other family law matter. Divorce can be incredibly stressful and for parents who have children, it can be even more difficult. Not only do child custody and child support matters often come into play, but some parents may even have a hard time discussing their divorce with their child. After all, many children do not ever want to see their parents split up.

If your child does not want you to divorce, it is important to take a careful approach and be sensitive. You should try to examine this situation from your child’s perspective and you could be able to help them work through this divorce by explaining what you are doing and how it may impact them, all while reassuring them that your love for them will not change.

Sometimes, children are never supportive of their parent’s decision to end a marriage. However, there are a couple of things to point out. First, some children, especially those who are very young, may not quite be able to understand some of the different reasons why divorce is necessary. Later in their life, they may be able to understand and accept your reasoning for divorce. Also, you should not feel trapped in a marriage because your children do not want you to split up with their other parent.
