How Can I Help My Child Adjust to a Divorce or Remarriage?
You should provide your child with the time and the resources they need to cope with major life changes, including divorce and/or remarriage. This often begins with encouraging them to communicate about how they are feeling with honesty and legitimizing their feelings by taking the time to acknowledge their experience.
From there, you can better offer support when they need it and space when they ask for it. Don’t force them into situations that make them feel uncomfortable, but also don’t deny the reality of the situation. It’s important for them to grasp that the situation is evolving while not feeling pressured into it.
