9 Additional Measures for Protecting your Kids

Parents can lessen the negative effects of their divorce upon the children by:

  • Treating each opportunity to be with their children as a rare chance to make things better for them.
  • Remembering that the parental duty they owe their children far outweighs the worst problem the other parent can cause them.
  • Recognizing that the children perceive aggression between their parents as aggression toward them.
  • Regularly telling the children about some of the neat things the other parent did before they were born or when they were too young to remember.
  • Recognizing that it is not their children’s role to be their shrink, double agent, or courier.
  • Being on time and calling the other parent promptly if any problems come up.
  • Being enthusiastic about the positive things that the other parent does with the children.
  • Respecting the other parent’s time with the children and also being flexible, so as to not cause any waves.
  • Making sure their friends and family members say only respectful and kind things about the other parent.
