Westfield Mediation, LLC Offers Toolkit for Parents To Help Kids Coping With Divorce
Friday, March 22, 2013 • 8:40pm
As part of its comprehensive approach to divorce mediation, Westfield Mediation, LLC offers parents a toolkit to help their children cope with divorce. In a one-hour consultation, a mediator can meet with one or both parents to review how to tell children about a divorce, and how to improve their ability to deal with this major change in their lives.
Children’s reaction to divorce often varies depending on their age; and there is range of behaviors that may be considered expected or normal. For example, in some cases, very young children respond to their parents’ divorce by becoming more needy, while adolescents may show more anger. Learning about children’s responses to divorce gives parents the tools they need to prepare for potentially difficult interactions.
In addition, studies have shown that children suffer most in high-conflict divorce, and it is the conflict rather than the divorce which causes the most problem. Westfield Mediation, LLC focuses on teaching parents how to provide the least stressful environment for their children. The Parenting Toolkit includes both explanations of how children of different ages typically respond to divorce, and recommendations on minimizing family drama.
