When Is The Best Time To Divorce For The Sake Of My Kids?

Here’s Our Response to This Question About how to divorce without hurting your kids

We hear stories about divorcing when they are very young so they forget… Then we hear stories about divorcing when they’re out of the house or teenagers because they’ll understand better.

The answer is definitely that “it depends” on you and your kids!

True the younger they are the more they may forget, and the older the more they may understand. The problem is that their parents, the two people they love more than the world itself, are not going to be together any longer.

So, it depends on how you and the other parent handle the situation. First, always make sure they understand they are loved unconditionally by both parents, regardless of you feelings for the other. Then, have a truthful conversation with them, based upon their ages and maturity, explaining that in life changes occur and this is one of those moments (many more to come) that everyone will have to understand, deal with it, and move on the best way they know how.

Scientifically? Well, under the age of 10 seems to be what we read about the most although from first hand experience I would say this isn’t the case.
