Of course, it is. When we explain to our children without dramatizing or without blaming the other, when we present the situation as something natural that often happens in the lives of many people, the child will accept the change calmly.
Children usually react in the way their parents react.
If parents are hurt and suffer, if they feel victims, then the child will feel that way … However, if parents approach one another wisely and intelligently, if they maintain friendly relations and do not suffer, then they will be able to protect their child from trauma. They will protect themselves.
Some children have even shared with me that they would prefer their parents to split because they are tired of the arguments and tensions. One of the common mistakes is for parents to live together unhappily for the sake of their children. So they teach them misery. The family model that children at a subconscious level become witness to will affect their future families.
It is very important that parents do not develop a sense of guilt about their divorce. Everyone has the right to make a mistake and the right to be happy. The best parent is the happy parent.
