Helping Your Child Deal With Divorce

Helping Your Child Deal With Divorce is a tri-fold pamphlet we’ve designed for parents. If you are a divorced or divorcing parent who is looking for information on how to help your child, this pamphlet is for you. It is also designed for those who work with kids who might be asked by a parent how to help their child.

As explained in the pamphlet,

Divorce hurts. When there are children involved, it hurts even worse for you and for them. This pamphlet is designed to help you to help your child better understand what is going on, grieve the loss they have experienced, heal from the hurt caused by divorce and lay a groundwork to allow them to move forward with their lives and find hope and healing.

The pamphlet covers basic information like how to tell you child, helping your child to grieve, dealing with emotions and helping your child after the divorce. It also includes links, books and other resources that might be helpful. You can access a pdf version of the pamphlet by clicking the photo above or here.
