Parenting After Separation - Putting Children First

Parenting After Separation - Putting Children First

Course Summary

If it is managed well by their parents, separation doesn’t have to be harmful to children. What is crucial to how well children adapt is the parents’ capacity to see the situation from their child’s perspective, and focus on what would be in their child’s best interests following family separation.
