Minimizing the Destruction of Divorce for Children Nottingham

Divorce is a chaotic time for couples. They’re traumatized and unable to think clearly. But it’s the child who bears the brunt of it all. They’re the main casualties, their lives torn apart in seconds. Co-parenting post-divorce or separation, especially while coping with emotional hurdles, is the biggest challenge of all.

At UK Family Mediation Nottingham, we’re here to support families through such difficult times. Here are some tips to help you, as a parent, manage your child’s emotional well being:

1. Show respect for the other parent in front of your child. Despite your differences, remember that they’re still your child’s parent. Avoid negative remarks, and use “Mum” or “Dad” instead of their name. This will provide a sense of safety and familiarity for your child.

2. Avoid discussing contentious issues with your ex-partner when your child is present, or even when they’re not around. It’s important that they get used to the idea of their parents living apart, and any conflict between you would only disturb the peace.

3. Communicate directly with your ex-partner instead of using your child as an intermediary. They’re not in a position to handle adult issues.

4. Accept that things won’t always go according to plan, and that flexibility is key. There will be situations where you need to act maturely and compromise.

5. Attend events with your ex-partner, such as plays, sports days, and graduations. This will reinforce the idea that both parents are still there for the child, and everything’s alright.

6. Remember, your child’s well-being is your priority. Make sure you always prioritise your child’s best interests, and take care of them to avoid problems.

At UKFM, we’ve assisted countless couples, whether married, in civil partnerships or otherwise, along with handling children’s-related concerns such as surrogacy. We believe in solving the issues through mediation where the mediator s will act as a neutral person who will help you find the middle ground and cater to both your and your children’s needs.

Mediation costs may vary depending on the complexity of the issues to be resolved, such as financial settlements, property division, and parenting. But it’s still significantly faster, less stressful, and far more affordable than going to court. Plus, you get to take control of your family’s future and create long-term solutions that meet everyone’s needs.

If you’re going through a divorce or separation and need guidance, our family mediation service can help. Get in touch with us today to book your Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting.
