Post-Divorce: How Your Children May Be Impacted 

Emotional Impacts
Your child may have different emotional responses to your divorce depending on what age they are. For example, if they are younger they may have this sensation that they may have caused this divorce and start to blame themselves. If they are a teenager, they may start to rebel or act out. The best thing you can do is just be there for them.

Confusion About Remarriage
Can you imagine how confusing it may be for a small child to have to welcome someone else who isn't their parent into their home if you decided to remarry? Be honest and gentle when delivering news like this.

Trouble With Future Relationships
When your child grows up they may hold your divorce as an example of relationships and they may experience some confusion when starting to get into relationships for themselves. Again, just be there for them and available to talk things like this out. Be honest and understanding of their feelings if they come to you for advice.
