What can we learn from the Brangelina divorce?

If you are currently going through a Georgia divorce that involves custody issues, you may be sympathizing with Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt as their custody questions are discussed in the news. Even if your situation is nothing like theirs, the upheaval that your child is facing may be similar to what the Jolie-Pitt children may go through in the coming months.

It may be a concern if you do not have the same resources that this high-profile couple will have to help their children. However, according to CBS News, assistance from a professional may not be more helpful than actions that you may take on your own. These include shielding your child from parental conflict, maintaining stability and providing love and reassurances.  

Experts explain that another factor within your control is understanding that the way a child experiences a divorce is affected by how old he or she is. For example, if your child is a teen, he or she may have the same needs and reactions as the two oldest Jolie-Pitts. Strict boundaries may be the answer to curbing rebellious behaviors as your teen attempts to deal with his or her new situation.

The fears and uncertainties that may be experienced by pre-teens and school aged children such as the younger four Jolie-Pitts are often allayed by predictable routines. This is even more important if your child is an infant, toddler or preschooler because at these ages, children are not able to understand what happened. One of the primary ways you can help your child, regardless of age, is to put your own feelings aside and provide the support needed.
