Divorces are really hard on everyone, especially the kids. They have to understand that their parent’s divorce isn’t their fault. They have to shuttle between houses every time and cannot even spend Christmas and other festive holidays with both parents at the same time and have to choose between those places for every holiday and the likes.
Check out some of the things they relate to.
