Many couples in the Columbus area who are contemplating divorce, often find themselves procrastinating because of their children. They believe that separation is more harmful to their kids than it is for them to stay together. What they might not realize is that kids are very intuitive. According to Live Bold and Bloom, children are more likely to suffer emotionally from the negative effects of their parents’ relationships than they are from divorce. 

Sometimes relationships do not work out. Regardless of why they fall apart, one of the best things parents can do is to separate so they can become healthier and happier. Distance in the form of divorce and separate households can help parents to regain the respect they used to have for each other and become better parents. Divorce forces parents to reevaluate their lives and take measures to ensure their children do not grow up in toxic environments, do not suffer from a loss of attention and are able to recover from it. 

It is important for separating parents to talk to their children about their decision. Talking helps to prepare them for the changes that must occur to restore a healthy family dynamic. Parents should also take into consideration their kids’ feelings and concerns. They should consider therapy for themselves and their children and spend more time with them. Parents who recognize how damaging unhealthy relationships can be are in a better position to take measures to put their children’s needs first in their divorce and help lessen its impact on them.
