One of the trickiest parts of a divorce for parents is breaking the news of the separation to the kids.  The issues are different depending on the ages of your children but it is always an important conversation.  I wrote a very comprehensive guide to how to prepare for and handle this situation on our Lakeway divorce site, you can view the post here.

The guide covers general suggestions that apply to all situations regardless of age and has additional specific tips that are applicable to preschool age children, elementary school age children and teenagers.  If you or someone close to you is in this position I really recommend you take a look at this guide for some tips on how to handle this discussion in a way that will best help your child deal with it.
