Soften the Blow of Divorce for Kids

The kids have been on my mind a lot lately, and I’ll be blunt, being severed from either parent, or from anyone who loves them, is a vindictive act for which I see no positive effects for any child.

Michael L. Thal comments in his article, You Can Soften the Blow of Divorce for Kids:

“Parents who teach their children to hate destroy their offspring and condemn them to go through life with tortured souls and twisted minds, never knowing peace. To avoid this fate, be a good parent by putting the children first over your own differences.”

Such a seemingly simple concept, putting the kids first, but some people clearly need an eye-opening reminder that the kids are the ones bleeding from their actions. Unfortunately, none of the people I know who exhibit such alienating behavior really seem to give a damn about the kids. When do your own children become tools, non-humans, currency? And when do you learn to stop before it’s too late?
