Every parent whose marriage ends in divorce worries about the impact on their children. Would you be surprised to know there are also some significant benefits to the children? Here are our top five benefits:
They Become Problem Solvers
They will learn to problem-solve. Divorcing can free parents to focus on co-parenting rather than staying together and trying to salvage a relationship. Co-parenting helps teach children to manage conflict.
Both parents are typically more involved and hands-on with their children post-divorce. The time they spend together is more focused on quality interaction.
Children benefit from love and structure. This is when children are happiest. Parenting plans and co-parenting counselling can achieve this goal.
Children with divorced parents will need to manage routines and activities like soccer and piano recitals. They learn to be organized and to communicate with both parents.
They Become Strong
Children learn to develop resilience and strength by overcoming obstacles and finding solutions to ongoing issues and problems.
