The RELATE website (the link above) offers excellent advice and resources for parents who are in the process of separating or who have already separated.
Information from the RELATE website:
Being a parent isn’t easy, especially in the tough times like dealing with separation. When it comes down to the moments that matter, it’s the quality of our relationships that get parents and kids through. We know that separating well – where both parents are able to be amicable, cooperative and fully engaged with their children – means better outcomes for the whole family.
Our Being Parents Apart campaign aims to raise awareness of the challenges that separation brings and let parents know that we’re here to help.
We offer a variety of support for parents and families at all stages of separation. Let us support you through the heartache and changes in a way that works for you.
Our help with separation and divorce area is written by Relate counsellors and can help you work together in the best interests of your children.
The guide provides practical advice and covers:
Family counselling can help you to understand and cope better with the stresses and strains of separation and help you move forward.
Children and teenagers can find it difficult to cope with the changes and upheavals of separation, talking to a Relate Young People's counsellor can help give them the support they need.
