How to explain divorce to children

Explaining divorce to a child really depends on their age. My daughter was three years old when her father and I divorced and it was more about what we did than what we said. I made sure that I said nothing ill about her father and we showed a lot of love so that if a child can feel love then they will feel more stable in their life. And also, divorce is a process and so as they get older they may have things that they’ve kept with them that you want to able to bring out so continue the conversation with them and make sure that both parents are involved if you can. But primarily, I would say don’t allow any negative conversations to come up about the other parent. Just be loving and supportive of your child.
