Getting a divorce doesn't automatically mean your children will be negatively impacted for life. It does, however, mean that they will go through a big change, which some children may find traumatic, stressful and full of anxiety or depression. It breaks your heart thinking about that possibility. Your children are the light of your life, and you want to do everything you can to make their life easier and make it the best it can be. You want them to feel supported and loved through this big life change.
