A Guide for Kids to Help Understand Separation and Divorce
posted on April 16, 2018
When parents separate or divorce children wonder “What’s Next?
While there are a lot of useful resources written for parents, this 64-page guide is written specifically for children 9-12 years old and includes lots of stories and activities to help them express their feelings.
Children can read it on their own or with a parent. It deals really well with concerns that usually trouble children including worry that they may have caused the separation, anger at one or both parents, and grief.
It guides children through the basic facts about family law and gives them an idea of what happens during the process that parents may go through when separating. It will also help children understand that it is okay for them to feel emotional about a divorce.
This booklet encourages children to voice their concerns to someone they trust like a parent, grandparent or family friend.
“This is a booklet for children, a lot of technical, legal information has been left out. This booklet only provides very general legal information because family law is a complex subject and some aspects of family law are different in each Canadian province and territory.”
