PARENTING FOR THE CHILDREN & TEENAGE CAREER COUNSELING
Relationships when broken are most of the time very painful; you are emotionally exhausted and just trying to survive yourself, this I have heard from hundreds of clients.
Sometimes we may forget about the most important little people in our lives, our beautiful children. No matter how young or old they are, no matter how strong or stable they seem to be coping, DON’T be fooled, they are affected.
They had no choice in the decision, their whole lives have changed, the stability, security love they once knew has gone and they could do nothing to make it better. Some will even blame themselves or be blamed by a parent or external party.
We are the PARENTS, our children are not our emotional leaning post, they should never feel a need to take sides and protect one or the other parent. Our children should never hear bad things about their other parent; after all REMEMBER they are half of both parents. What does that message teach them?
Children need to know that the decision of a break up has nothing to do with them and that both parents love the children unconditionally and will try to work together in the best interest of their Children. This produces stable young adults with self-respect and self-esteem.
I have a passion for helping children; they seem never to have a voice when I listen to parents fighting over them. The name calling, the verbal abuse occurring between the parents causes the children to become peacemakers, overprotecting the other parent, trying to make everything better!
Things need to change, you loved your ex once, even if for a short time, your children don’t need to bear that pain, they are going through their own pain and most of the time in silence or acting out like aggression, over eating, with drawn, cutting, self-harm, etc.
