Breaking the news to the kids!
Recorded on June 14, 2018 This tremendous shock to your child will need to be customized for their age. Some details should never be included such as mistakes, whys and what went wrong. Working together will teach children how to navigate conflict and avoid combat. They need to feel like the family unit still exists and that even though there will be routine changes, everyone is still playing on the same team.

What the court process will look like for divorce
A second opinion is a good way to be prepared when adding stress to a child's environment. Parents should always seek mediation or arbitration BEFORE announcing changes such as divorce or separation. At Positive Choices Counselling & Consulting we help parents understand what these changes will look like to a child's point of view. We will help you to develop a set of tools and the language needed to make this transition as safe as possible for the children. Our counselors can also help you save money when tackling the court process for family matters. We will provide you with the insight they need for the decisions they are making. Investing in our services costs much less then retaining a lawyer. Some of our services are even funded or are eligible for legal aid. Remember that your child did not ask to get divorced. The child needs to know that their parents are well, safe and will not abandoned them. Calls are always free! (403) 862-6543 http://positivechoicescounselling.com
