A Happy Future for You and Your Children is a Choice
A lot of books, web sites, counselors, psychologists, support centers and lawyers involved in Children and Divorce write and preach about everything that can go wrong. They highlight the possible negative outcomes of divorce on children, like under performance at school, poorer social skills or even depression.
However, only a minority of the children of divorce suffer from the negative effects.
Do these specialists and resources contribute to preventing or solving these problems? Or do they create problems that actually do not exist? Do you and your children really need help from professionals?
Does the divorce cause the problems or is it something else?
Of course, your divorce does hurt your children emotionally. They will feel pain. You will feel emotional pain. The divorce will hurt your feelings and it will undermine your and your children’s self esteem. But the pain will disappear. The memories will stay. That is all very natural.
There are common beliefs about divorce like: Divorce is bad. Life after a divorce becomes more difficult for you and for your children. The divorce has negative consequences for your children. You and your children will have to “cope” with the new situation. The future perspectives for your children are negatively affected.
Indeed, statistics show that children of divorce do worse at school and in university, have more difficulties to involve in social relationships and have higher divorce rates themselves. But those are just statistics, averages that do not apply to everybody.
Fortunately, there are also many examples of children that thrive after the divorce. Those divorced parents did not accept this mediocre perspective. They chose differently. They aimed for a happy, bright and thriving future for their children and for themselves after the divorce. They took action. With or without professional help. And they succeeded.
