Relationships Quick Answers

 

 

What kinds of behavior changes can parents, teachers, and caregivers expect to see during the time around a separation or divorce?


Parents need to remember that divorce is stressful for their children, just as it is for the parents. In the short-term, perhaps for several months or even a couple of years, children may act in ways that are irritating and sometimes disruptive. This behavior is understandable in view of the changes taking place.
