Strange parents

Sometimes parents start to see new people after they divorce. Many children find that their parents behave strangely when they start to do this.
They can even be more embarrassing than they used to be. Honest.
But this behaviour will settle down. All parents can be embarrassing but separated or divorced parents are just better at it for a while. Just laugh with your friends.

You do not have to take sides
And sometimes one parent remains very sad and the other one is very happy.
This can be hard for you.
You should still see both parents.
You do not have to choose.
The sadness will soon end but if you think it is a problem, talk to them or another trusted adult about this.
Never keep things to yourself.

Always talk to someone like a teacher or aunty.
