If you and your spouse have children and have made the difficult decision to divorce, it is critically important to keep the needs of your children at the heart of every decision you make. You may feel extreme anger, sadness, frustration, disappointment about the loss of your marriage, but none of this is your children’s fault. It is unfortunately very easy to let those intense emotions impact your kids.
