Divorce is such a life-changing event for both adults and children. For we adults, we can try and control the situation as best as possible, but sometimes circumstances happen which we have little control over and can leave lasting effects on our children. Knowing how to talk about and deal with such events can make us uncomfortable. When becoming a parent, there is no university or college degree or instruction manual provided; we learn from our parents, those around us, our gut feels at the time and experience. Mostly dealing with our own emotions and temperament at the same time.
