Over 1 million children will see their parents divorce this year, and 50% will experience this life-changing event before turning 18. At any age, the break up of their parents can leave kids feeling sad, angry, and deeply hurt. Often, the rippling effects of the split can impact the entire family.
How can parents provide emotional stability and guidance through this difficult transition? What are the best ways to co-parent through the adjustment to ensure healthy relationships with both parents? How can custody matters be resolved in the best interest of the entire family?
Divorce: The Rippling Effect is being presented at the RVA Parents Forum Series on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 6 p.m. at the Children’s Museum of Richmond- Short Pump location.
