Parents can help kids get through divorce

When parents in Texas decide to divorce, they may be concerned about how the end of their marriage will affect their children. Of course, many people know that children can suffer when their parents separate, but by being conscious of how they interact with each other and the kids, parents can help to mitigate these effects. Experts note that marriages that are full of conflict, infidelity, contempt or abuse can be particularly dangerous to children's well-being and can teach damaging messages about relationships for the future.
