One of the by products of a divorce action is the sharing of the children. An in tact family functions very differently from a broken home. If it is hard on the adults, you can imagine how hard it is on the kids.
You have to share the children. That means not having them for certain events, holidays, times of the day, etc. With work schedules of parents, children sometimes have to come second. Children become bouncing balls, going from mom’s house to dad’s. They forget their school books, soccer shoes, homework. They may not have adequate clothing at one place or the other. They end up carrying their stuff from place to place. It is not easy being a child of divorced parents.
Parents fight over the kids and kids think it’s their fault. “You didn’t return the clothes clean” is a common complaint to the other parent. “Don’t go to the game today I’m going”, is another. None of this is good for anyone.
Adults need to step up to the plate and be adults. Think about what your kids are going through having to share YOU.
