Choose your timing When you are considering separating from your partner and you are considering it, remain silent until you’re certain. While it may be more authentic to tell your spouse “Daddy and Mom are contemplating” about separation,’ the ambiguity of hearing about this development could create confusion in your child.
If you’re trying to talk to children regarding divorce Keep it simple and clear.
The conversation could be “Mommy and Daddy had a lot of thoughts,” and then add, “Mommy/daddy will be moving into a bigger apartment.” Before the conversation, try to figure out the date and where the event will occur so that you’re prepared to relay that details.
Believing that your parents will be there for it will give you peace. Additionally, acknowledge that your child may have been involved in arguments, and tell them your commitment to always to do what is best to the family.
