You know how when you are going through a divorce, you can’t help asking yourself questions like “Could I have done something differently?” or “What will everyone think?” or “How will my life change in the future?”

Well, your children have the same questions and how they answer those questions for themselves may not be logical or based in any reality. Of course, the emotional distress of a divorce may cause the same lack of logic in you.

So whatever questions you are asking yourself, ask your children the same questions but in a different manner. This will get a dialogue going with them to allay their fears. For example: “Are you worried about what your friends are thinking since daddy and mommy are not living in the same house?”
