Let Children Be Children

Posted January 20, 2018

During a separation or divorce, it may be tempting for a parent to use a child as a sounding board, ally or confidante. Children also can be used as intermediaries to deliver messages or support payments between parents or as a means to gather information about the other parent’s activities.

Avoid the temptation! Placing children, even older children, in the middle of adult conflicts damages them.

Let children be children. Adult situations are for adults to handle.
