12-minute course that addresses the basics of how to tell your kids about divorce. Note that this course does not address they "why" that children inevitably ask; that will differ for every family. As a general rule, though, the younger the child, the less they need to know.

Please seek out professional support if appropriate, and especially if you or your child are struggling.View the course
Parents fighting too much? Too much ongoing stress, even if it's a "low level" current running through the home?
In this 15-minute mini-course, I cover how to handle conflict in the home when kids are present and when both parents are committed to supporting their children's mental health.
If possible, please do consider therapy or other mental health support for yourself and/or your child if stress is toxic or ongoing. Note that this course does not address abusive situations. If abuse is present, professional support is essential.View the course
