Support for children dealing with divorce

Whether you are a parent, teacher, relative or a concerned adult you may feel at a loss when trying to figure out how to offer support to a child of divorce. It may be hard to understand what the child is thinking and feeling, but it is important to be aware of how signs of grief are manifesting in a child. This is often very different than how an adult would grieve, and adults should be on the look out for signs such as a withdrawal from previously enjoyable activities or other changes in behavior.
