How Parents Can Talk To Their Children About Divorce
Lawyer, divorce expert and author Jacqueline Newman joins Dr. Dan at The Parent Footprint to discuss how parents can talk to their children about divorce.
Newman’s book THE NEW RULES OF DIVORCE: 12 Secrets to Protecting Your Wealth, Health, and Happiness, was recognized by Oprah Magazine as one of “the best divorce books to help you heal during every stage of the process.” Today, with the pandemic, it is predicted that divorce in the US will be going through an unprecedented and historic transformation according to Jacqueline.
How will COVID-19 impact divorce?
According to Jacqueline, everything from child custody hearings to how legal papers are filed to ending marriages is going to change. The first statistic that we are likely to observe is the divorce rate increasing in the US as a result of stress, financial strain, and other challenges exaggerated during the pandemic.
