Military divorce and a child’s emotions

| Feb 6, 2019 | Uncategorized

Divorce can be incredibly tough for many couples and this is especially true for military families. Moreover, the emotional toll of bringing an end to a marriage can be even more difficult for those who have kids. It is also important to be aware of the different ways that divorce can impact children as well, and if you have kids you should try to think about their perspective. For children, this can be an upsetting time and you should try to reassure them that they will continue to be loved and provide them with answers to their questions.

For a child whose parent is in the military, emotional challenges over an inability to see a parent or their parents’ marriage may be familiar. For example, one of their parents may have been deployed for an extended period of time, and the child may have already had to deal with spending time away from a parent. However, divorce issues such as child custody can still be very challenging for a child and they may be worried about how their lives will be impacted by their parents’ decision to terminate the marriage.

It is important for you to do what you can to help your child work through these changes. You should try to maintain your own composure around your kids and minimize some of the possible emotional effects of divorce. If you notice that your child is upset due to your divorce, you should think about some of the different ways you could help.
