Kids Beyond Parents' Conflict

When children see high conflict in their parents' divorce, they

  • experience greater difficulty in sorting out their feelings
  • feel "caught" between the parents
  • experience deep depression
  • experience high anxiety
  • take part in deviant behavior
  • feel guilty, angry and alone

Understand this: children can sense the vibrations of the anger even when the parents pretend everything is okay while with them.


For each problem discussed here, remedies exist to help parents and children  adjust to the changes.  The thing is to get through the pain of the divorce and move on with their lives.  Our workbooks for Moms and for Dads 

  • ask the important questions that point to problems

  • leave it up to parents to decide what to do

  • point out self-defeating reactions

  • give ways to spot problems and solutions

  • give ways to get past the pain

  • show ways to create resolution dramas

As with our workbooks for children and for teenagers, Love Energy and Light are the prevailing resources we apply.
