Age-by-Age Guide to What Children Understand About Divorce

I ran across a great resource for divorcing parents trying to figure out what their kids do and don’t understand about divorce. Check it out here.

Kids older than 11 probably understand just about everything about what’s going on, and likely know a whole lot more than you even appreciate. The best thing you can do for them is make sure they have a relationship with a counselor or other trained person who can be a “sounding board” for them as they work through their emotions surrounding the divorce process.
