As a result, children can sometimes feel neglected and jealousy may arise.
Another potential problem is that the child will talk about a parent’s new partner with the other parent, who in turn will become visibly angry and/or jealous.
Divorce is an adult concept that is difficult for children to grasp.
Once you’re done talking, set a good example in your relationship with your significant other.
Once your child starts dating, don’t stop talking to them about relationships.
Can you imagine his experience finding her in bed with a strange man? When they become teenagers, how will you be able to teach them about responsibility and appropriate sexual activity if their childhood included a stream of your lovers that spent the night?
If we focus on our children’s needs following a separation or divorce, we will hopefully slow down and keep our perspective as new relationships bloom.
