How can I tell my kids I’m getting divorced?

If you and your spouse are considering getting a divorce in Georgia, one of the things you’re likely concerned about is how your kids will feel when they find out. Knowing when and how to let children know about a parental divorce is never easy but there are some things you can do to be prepared to help your children through it.

One of the most important things you and your to-be former spouse should do is find a way to deliver the message to your family together. Parents.com suggests that this lets all of your kids see the two of you still as some form of a team in raising them and that can breed some security for kids through such a transition. You will want to find a time to talk with your kids when there are no other time constraints so that they will be able to ask questions if they wish.

The reactions you can expect from your kids can vary based upon their personalities and their ages. Know that they may well want and need to be reassured about some very basic everyday routines and things that most directly affect their lives. This can be anything from who will read them a bedtime story to who will pick them up from school every day and more.
