Talking to Your Kids About Marital Separation
Timing is Important
If you tell them too far out of the separation, they become anxious. Time to a very young child can seem like forever. If you wait until right before it happens, they won’t have enough time to adjust to all the changes and process what is happening. So think through the timing of the conversation; not too far out to make it feel like an eternity, but enough time to deal with the changes that will come.
