Dating during divorce effects children

Their world is being turned upside down and anything that can lend some stability to their lives during this emotionally trying time is a major plus.

However, with more and more Indian couples realising that the old adage of “staying together for kids” in an unhappy marriage is not the best solution, they are opting to split up.

But one needs to be aware of the negative effects of divorce on children and how to deal with it.

Nor am I suggesting that a divorced parent observe a particular time of abstinence from dating after the divorce is final.

I am saying that kids really aren't that concerned with the legalities of the terms separation and divorce.

My advice, for most of these situations, is to refrain from exposing one's kids to seeing their parent in this role.
