Use the Alternative Divorce Guide to create your own map for navigating divorce & family breakup. Will divorce really harm my children? Please be clear on this: divorce and family breakup does not harm children. However, adversarial the divorce – parents who battle through the courts; who communicate without respect or compassion; who fail to lead the way in how they can still co-parent and put their children first despite the challenges of the divorce process – those children WILL be harmed long term. They may struggle to have healthy relationships themselves in the future, and some will even self-harm or be more likely to suffer from addictions. There are long-term studies which demonstrate this – but we all know it is obvious that a nasty divorce will hurt the kids, because we all know people who have been the victims of such divorces.
