Cupid’s Advice:

Divorces can get nasty, but it’s important to protect you and your ex’s greatest asset-your children.  Here are some ways to get through your  breakup without  your kids having to deal with the drama:

1. Keep it between grown-ups: There is no need to let your children in on every little detail of the divorce.  Keep kids out of grown-up business.

2. Don’t ask them to take sides: Pinning your children against your ex will only backfire.  Keep them happy by respecting your ex around them.

3. Talk it out: It’s a good idea to ask your children about their feelings regarding the divorce.  Divorce means change, and it’s important to take the time to validate your kids’ emotions.
