Helping your children cope with divorce

Possible benefits to you and your family of attending this course:

How parents react to each other during this stressful time can have long lasting implications for their children.  What parents need to bear in mind is that we model for them how to ‘be in relationship’.  We model for them how to how to interact and communicate with others. We show them by example how to manage conflict.  These are some of the crucial tasks of parenting.

Parents need to acknowledge that issues that were problematic during the marriage; in the areas of communication and conflict management don’t suddenly disappear.  A new way has to be found in order for the family to function in a healthier manner.
