Children typically encounter many challenges when their parents divorce. You may have done what most other Colorado parents do after deciding to sever your marital ties, which is to gather the kids all in one room and have a family discussion about it. From that point on, however, each of your children may have different reactions and will likely need guidance, support and encouragement from you, especially as the first year without the family under one roof unfolds.
Like most parents, you want what is best for your children. However, how you interpret that and how your ex does may spark some friction. If a particular obstacle arises, you can reach out for additional support at any time. In the meantime, you can take several steps to help your children cope and move on in life.
