There is no question that divorce is hard, especially for the children involved. Although it can be difficult when deciding to divorce or to stay together for the children’s sake, divorce in many cases is emotionally better for the entire family. Removing children from exposure to a hostile home life and parents who argue is far better than keeping them in a negative environment.
Having two households without constant conflict and tensions immediately frees the environment for kids to just be themselves. Living apart may not always be ideal, but can open the way for children to have a better relationship with each parent. This may be somewhat challenging in the early months of transition, but children are resilient and often settle quickly into a more calm existence. Another emotional benefit of living apart are happier parents. Happiness is contagious and children will reap huge benefits from happy parents. Living happy apart rather than staying together in a negative environment virtually always triumphs. Moreover, happier parents typically make better parenting decisions, and tend to cooperate with each other more.
When parents choose to work together while sharing child custody can demonstrate compromise and cooperation to their children. Furthermore, it shows children of divorce that solutions can be found even in the most challenging of situations. Teaching children that working through trying times can not only end in positive brighter outcomes can help them learn positive life skills. Moreover, choosing personal happiness teaches kids the importance of doing so for themselves.
