From KidsHealth.org, “An Explanation of Divorce for Kids” is a guide to divorce written specifically for kids.
It starts with a simple explanation of what divorce is:
A divorce happens after a husband and wife decide not to live together anymore and that they no longer want to be married to each other. They agree to sign legal papers that make them each single again and allow them to marry other people if they want to.
From there, the article explains that “Divorce Is Tough For Everyone,” and includes the important reminders that “Kids Don’t Cause Divorce” and “Kids Can’t Fix Divorce.”
If your parents are getting a divorce, or you know someone whose parents are divorced, this is a great resource to find out the basics about divorce.
