Suicide among parents of divorce is an important issue to address in all countries: “Every week 21 Australian fathers commit suicide as a result of child access issues, child support financial pressures, and unfair family court rulings following separation. We need your help to change this.” Australian Brotherhood of Fathers http://www.theabf.com.au

This child is being pulled in two different directions. Each parent is hanging on tightly. Notice how one parent seems to be pulling a little harder. Children want to have both parents close by. Children want to have a relationship with both parents. Working together means the child has a reciprocating and loving relationship with each parent. Support Equal Shared Parenting!

This very talented artist faces the ‘monster’ of divorce. Excellent depiction of the emotional experiences of divorce from the child’s perspective. The artist shares: “As Kubo walked into the dark, gloomy cave, he suddenly heard a noise and swiftly turned around to it’s source, he looked but there was no one there, he turned back around and gazed at the sight of the monster ,The Monster of abandonment ,and despair, he swiftly grabbed his guitar and shamisen,and started to play.”
info about the art from the artist:
“Okay, the shadowy wolf thing its actually what I had to deal with in my elementary school years ,you see my elementary school years were not the best ,I had to face betrayal ,abandonment ,loneliness ,and my family now divorced ,and many other things ,but it wasn’t until jr. high that I met my friend ,which is now my friend even to today.”

This 9 year-old draws a pic of divorce. For this child, divorce makes her feel ‘Sad’ + Embarrassed + Confused. The large tears and eyes help convey her important message. An upside down smile in red completes this artwork. Are the parents aware of how this little girl feels? I hope someone talks to her about what is happening.

Children want and need to have a relationship with BOTH parents. In this ‘artwork’ one parent is nondescript and separate from other family members. From the standpoint of the child, each family member is important. No one is ‘crop-able’. Supporting the parent-child relationship with each parent is important to the child.
