Parent to parent. This mother gives advice to anyone thinking about divorce. She expresses emotional turmoil knowing her daughter will also experience the same anxiety this mom experienced during childhood due to parental conflict. This mom acknowledges the difficulty in visiting four sets of grandparents at the holidays. And, grief in knowing her daughter will live in a world of unknowns. Sadly, there is a long list of divorces among her immediate and extended family. Some parents know how the logistics of divorce will impact their child. Yet, as the parent not wanting the divorce, she is limited. There seems to be nothing she can do to change anything…except advise parents considering divorce. Thank you for helping, mom!
To Anyone thinking about divorce,
The divorce was not my idea!
I hate that my daughter will grow up as I did. Four sets of grandparents to visit at the holidays. Anxiety at school events because her parents do not get along.
My parents are divorced. My brothers and sister are divorced. Several aunts and uncles are divorced. This is what my daughter has-a family of divorces.
I regret that my daughter has to live in a world of unknowns.
I wish there was something I could do to make this better for my baby.
To all parents out there thinking about divorce. Don’t do it!
