Children often have a difficult time when it comes to divorce. They may feel left out of many of the decisions that have to be made, especially as they get older. While younger children may not remember much about the divorce in the future, older kids have the potential to hold onto their anger or frustration and later use it against their parents.
It's essential that unmarried parents do all they can to establish who a child's biological parents are. Of course, it's usually easy to determine the mother. On the other hand, determining the father may not be as simple.
Kids sometimes have a difficult time adjusting to life after a divorce. However, when they do, it often has something to do with the way their parents have handled themselves or how they are acting toward the other parent now.
