INFORMATION FOR SEPARATED PARENTS
Separation Heals in Time
Separation in young families are becoming more common.
Emotionally and mentally wounds need that time to heal.
Though time doesn’t stop. Both parents decide to live at separate addresses.
That person you once loved and who you share a child with now becomes your worst enemy. Why is this? It’s a known fact that people tend to hurt the ones they love.
We all have made bad choices. We all make mistakes. There is no right or wrong.
Importantly it’s wise that decisions are not made when your angry.
The child is loved by both parents.
Let the child be loved and be heard.
Seek help where appropriate whether it’s relationship counselling or a mediation service. You decisions will not only affect the child but also grandparents and other family members.
