What are some ways to make your children feel loved after a split?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s important for both parents to give their children the same attention and care after a spilt.  This lets them know that they will always be loved despite the status of their mother and father’s relationship:

1. Family outings: A family trip to the movies or the zoo is always a good way to let your children know that both of their parents still care despite the split.  With so much change happening, this helps to instill a little normalcy in your childrens’ lives.

2. Support them: Whether it’s a dance recital or a basketball game, make sure that both you and your ex are there  to support your kids as frequently as possible in their extra-curricular activities.

3. Love reminder: In the wake of a split, parents many sometimes forget to tell their children that they love them.  A simple “I love you” can be enough to put a child at ease.
