Every child copes with divorce differently

Ending a marriage is a difficult thing to do, particularly if children are involved. Most kids do not cope with significant change well, and all children will react differently to it. There is one thing that parents in Washington can do to help their children through this challenging time, and that is simply doing what they think is best for their kids.

There are numerous books and articles out there and available on the subject of helping children cope with divorce. It is normal to feel the need to take in as much information as possible and put it into practice, and there may be no harm in doing so. There is just one problem, however. Every child does not fit into a standard mold. They have their own unique needs, and parents are the only ones who know what those needs are.

There is a desire to get parenting through divorce just right so as not to scar one's children, but what is just right? The simple truth of the matter is, there are many ways to approach parenting through divorce. Parents have to take into account their knowledge of their children when deciding how to handle various situations.

Outside of relying on parental intuition to help one's children cope with divorce, the best thing one can do is make sure their parenting plans fit their kids' needs. No standard plan exists, though, the state of Washington does, like other states, push for joint custody -- unless there is a reason to avoid it. Legal counsel can help one seek custody terms that suit their children's best interests.
