Positive Attitude

 

This young artist keeps a positive attitude about parental divorce. Sweetly, this child offers comfort to mom and dad and conveys a message of acceptance with  the divorce.  Thankfully, this young one does not feel responsible for the changes that have taken place. And, offers good luck to both parents. Hopefully, this child will maintain positive through the years.

Time to be Brave

 

A talented artist uses creativity to convey her thoughts about a possible parental divorce. The eyes and sad face indicate concern about what will happen next. While the other part is happy.  Fortunately, for this adolescent, the divorce did not take place. This artist states “t’s time to be brave. Time to be smart and brave and hardworking for a fair outcome. I couldn’t turn 18 soon enough…”.  Divorce is between the parents and should be about the child!

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!

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.

Happy on the Outside

 

Standing under blue skies and white clouds a child surrounded by sporting event balls appears smiling.   The words state “I’m happy on the outside to everyone I know.” This child seems to be presenting as a happy person to everyone and sad on the inside. Divorce and custody may be distressing to some children. Offering emotional support is important.

Divorce Problems

 

Divorce has a tendency to turn everyones world upside down. This artist shares a realistic view of parental divorce. “My parents gave me more trouble than I ever gave them.” Divorce is between the parents and should be about the child.

Sad Faces

 

 

A very sad depiction of parental divorce.  Everyone has a sad face. Even the prominent blue tear at the top seems lost and forlorn.  This young artist presents a sense of being alone as he is surrounded by large blue tears. Hopefully, someone will reach out to this child.
