Never Give Up

 

This parent declares determination in seeing his son. Even though events are observed on the side lines. Father attends all school games.  Even though there is no verbal contact between parent and child. This father refuses to give up.

Reality of Divorce

 

When one parent states they want a divorce a common question from the other parent is ‘what about the children’.  Thinking about how divorce will impact your child is a valid concern.  Divorce brings about many changes for everyone-especially for your child.  Their world is changing at an emotional, physical and possibly financially level. This is especially true when one parent moves out, relocates and/or resides with a new spouse.

Unraveled

 

An emotionally captivating expression of divorce. This child seems stuck in the middle in what was once his home. Two individuals/parents(?)are  unraveling the home life of this child. This boy appears terribly distraught; crouched and hiding his face. Do these parents have any idea what they are doing to their child? A a most bewildering depiction of divorce.

Give This Note to Your Dad

A bright character is the primary object on this artwork. Sun rays in the upper corner and the message below completes this drawing.  Note has the letter “W” on the outside.  Is this significant to the name of the child or parent? Putting the child in the middle of communications between the parents is unfair.  I hope these parents realize how these actions impact their child. Divorce is between the parents-about the child. LOVE WINS!

Shameful!

 

This is shameful! One parent offers to cease child support payments for full custody of their child. This speaks to the need for family court reform with child support.   “Child support is intended to support the child-not break the parent emotionally and financially.” Ruth A. S. Nichols

I Feel Mad…

 

A young child creates a visual for  expressing his thoughts. Child states: “I feel mad because my parents are divorced.” The artwork shows a sad faced green monster face. Hopefully, someone is reaching out to this child who is seemingly expressing emotional distress. Perhaps the parents will see the art and help him.
