The Truth of Post-Divorce
The truth of post-divorce brings major emotional challenges each year. I feel like the emotional scars of children are the casualties of divorce. Single parenting in one home is extremely difficult when values are so different.
It is impossible to handle every situation by yourself. The best resource I found is seeking mental health professionals to help me handle these growing pains. I know no matter what I try to offer in terms of parenting it may not work for each child. Each of my children is extremely different when it comes to communicating their feelings.
This year is the end of senior year and the start of middle school. The task of finding the right mental health professional requires lots of research. One reliable source for specialist referrals is our pediatrician and then I used my insurance website for providers in the area. I am a firm believer in helping my kids with their mental health so they are on the right path to becoming adults who are equipped with healthy coping skills.
