Parents Helping Children

Clinical psychologist Joe Nowinski stressed the importance of guiding children through the first three years after a divorce, especially if they’re young.

“The first three years seem to be crucial,” he wrote. “Your child can emerge from the next three years a more resilient, self-confident individual. Your child is perfectly capable of surviving this upheaval, but will likely need some support and guidance along the way.”

He added: “Divorcing parents who have young children need to be sure that these children are able to form and maintain strong and stable attachments. If divorce stands in the way of this process, a child can effectively ‘stumble at the starting gate’ of life.
