If You’re Divorcing, Don’t Sacrifice Your Children

David Woodsfellow, a psychologist in Atlanta, wrote the following article, appearing on the Georgia Psychological Association’s website:

No parent wants to get divorced. Divorce is no one’s first choice. By the time it’s gotten to divorce, many people are ready to get away from their spouse. But very few are ready to be away from their children.

Either way it’s very difficult. Being apart from one’s children is truly heartbreaking. Raising children alone is very, very hard.

But, if it’s come to divorce, there’s one principle you can’t forget. DON’T SACRIFICE YOUR CHILDREN. Don’t harm your children so that you’ll feel better.
