Parents of young children face specific challenges during divorce

Divorcing with young children is a challenging situation. You have to help the children understand that Mommy and Daddy aren't going to live together and that this means they will split their time between two homes. This isn't something that is easy for little kids to understand, but it is the reality that many have to face.

Another reason why it is difficult for parents who have youngsters at home to divorce is because the parents still have to deal with each other when it comes to the kids. This is a complicated situation, but it is possible to keep the issues that you have to a minimum. In our previous blog post, we gave you some tips for this.

We know that there are going to be issues that you and your ex don't agree on at times. If you were able to always get along and agree, you probably wouldn't be facing a divorce and child custody issues now.

When issues do arise, you can set the tone for how they are handled. Staying calm and looking into what is the best option for your children can help you in these cases. You don't need to get so upset that you fly off the handle, even if your ex tries to push you there.

You do have the option of seeking a modification of the child custody order if the current one isn't working any longer. This would mean that you need to try to work things out with your ex, but you would also have the option to ask the court to make decisions about the contentious matters.
