Joint education of the child after divorce
Divorced parents should restrain anger, and not interfere with each other for the sake of the child. Parents after the divorce should at least contain the anger and work together to find a compromise in the upbringing of children. Ideally, they should develop common rules and behaviors for the children in the homes of each other.
Most parents could hardly restrain anger, and cooperation and say nothing. Meanwhile, a compromise is necessary.
Opinions about the differences between the parents after the divorce, the eyes of their children.
- Julia, 12 years old, complained to the psychologist, that she could not invite both parents to the concert, which is involved because at the meeting they will quarrel. After the last meeting of their mom did not talk to Julia for two days, as the father brought the concert his new wife (Nina). The mother refused to be in the same room with them and left. Julia bothered to invite the parents take turns, because she sees their disappointment and shame, if one of them can come to the concert, and the other - no. "Why can not they put aside their differences and spend a couple of hours in the same room? "- Good question, is not it?
- Parents Sergei, 9 years old, for example, use it as an intermediary, passing each other wishes and messages, one of them - to convey to his father, that he brought and drove Sergei elsewhere during their weekly meetings. Sergei could not refuse his mother, because he wants to meet with his father.
In both cases, the parents had to bear the emotional burden of divorce, because the parents could not settle the existing contradictions between them and behave as befits an adult.
Effective solution for the parents of Julia would be constructive conversation without quarrels and disputes, as a result of which they were able to see. Sergei would be happy if his parents coordinated their plans without him.
The main thing is to come to the decision that would allow children to be children, and parents to be adults.
