Helping children to understand divorce is perhaps one of the hardest aspects of divorce. After you have sat down and explained that their parents won’t be living together anymore, what comes next?
你的孩子可能会有问题。These might not be easy to answer, and you might not know the answers yourself. For example, they might want to know where they will live before you’ve even had a chance to decide if you’re going to sell the family home or who will have父母的责任.
Here are just some of the books suitable for all ages that can help to introduce the idea of divorce, answer questions, and reassure children that they aren’t alone.
