Reading up on how little people deal with big issues👫👫
When parents decide to separate, it has quite an impact on their children. Some children may be more clingy or display attention-seeking behaviour. This might not always seem like it has anything to do with the separation, but it usually does. Having to deal with the separation while also having your children testing your limits can be very challenging. One way how to deal with this is by explaining to your children what is happening. What you say will depend on your child’s age and be cautious as phrases like “mum and dad don’t love each other anymore” may result in your children thinking that their parents can fall out of love with them too. What you can do instead, is to be honest and simplify the situation. Make sure that from all that you say, your children get the message that they are still loved by their parents, even though they might have grown apart.
