Divorces can be emotional roller-coasters that leave everyone involved traumatized. Sadly, because of their vulnerability at a young age, children are often hurt the most. Protecting your kids throughout the process should be one of your biggest concerns when going through a divorce.

Keeping in mind the following tips throughout your divorce can help you protect your children:

Communication is key. Kids are smart and curious by nature. They know when something is going on. It is your job to communicate with them and assure them everything will be okay. Also, make sure your children know that the divorce is not their fault.

Don’t expose kids to arguing. Fights and arguments are likely to occur during a divorce but that doesn’t mean you need to expose your children to them. Be aware that they may listening in when you argue on the phone or in another room. Also, never make them choose sides.

Spend time with them and be affectionate. During a divorce, it is important you take extra time to spend with your kids. Even though things may be hectic for you, imagine how it is for them. And make sure you continue to show them love and affection.

Consider mediation. Mediation is an alternative to traditional divorce that has proven to be more amicable and less stressful on families.
