Obviously, there are different ways to talk to children about divorce and the approach will change depending on their developmental level.

But at all ages you should do everything you can to keep the message simple and understandable. Say things to reassure them, like “Mommy and Daddy will be happier and argue a lot less in two different homes” and “you will not have to move but you will have two houses where you will be loved.” Address things like: their safety is important to both of you and how important they are to both of you.

Divorce is hard enough as it is, see to it that your child’s life is not interrupted. Don’t let them have to change schools or interrupt daily routines.
