Parents in Colorado who divorce are no doubt familiar with various challenges that may arise when developing plans for future care and upbringing of their children. It is often  possible to achieve amicable solutions to child support, visitation and custody issues.

Talking to a child about divorce

It's no secret that divorce can be hard on children, but how you communicate news of a split largely sets the tone for and impacts how your child will feel about the whole process. By keeping the focus on clear and simple communication and tailoring the conversation to your child's age and emotional state, you can explain how things will change and express future plans without upsetting your son or daughter any more than is necessary. For example, it's important to carefully consider what you tell your child. Keep in mind that blaming a spouse or sharing inappropriate details can confuse and upset a child and even damage your relationship with him or her.
