No matter how much you attempt to insulate your children from your divorce, you can't avoid it affecting them. The life they knew is gone, and big changes are coming. Even though you and your future former spouse agree to focus on your children as you create a custody agreement and parenting plan, you could be missing crucial pieces of information.
Divorce is a major life change. Because it can come with many connotations, emotional reactions and opinions from others, you may feel uncertain when it comes to dealing with your own feelings regarding your pending divorce. Though you may feel that it is the best option for your circumstances, you may still worry that others may attempt to make you feel ashamed about the decisions to come.
