Cupid’s Advice:

After a split, some issues may arise regarding legal matters. You and your ex may disagree on some aspects. Although, it is important to be mature and handle these disputes privately so that it doesn’t affect your children. We all know that guaranteeing your children’s happiness is the biggest priority. Here are some tips on how to keep these legal battles from negatively affecting your kids:

1. Talk to them: If your kids are older, they most certainly will not be blind to the situation at hand. They may overhear phone call conversations and such. Even though you are trying to keep them out of it, older kids should still be informed so they feel involved and loved. Be honest and explain to them what is going on but assure them that everything is going to be okay.

2. Don’t badmouth your ex partner: The last thing you want to do is talk negatively about your kid’s other parent in front of them. You never want to make it seem like there is a good guy and a bad guy because that will just create an abundance of stress on your children. Even if you feel as if your ex is a horrible person, keep it to yourself and allow your children to form their own opinions by the way that they treat them.
