Help and advice for children in divorce

You MUST remember these things:

Your Mum and Dad still LOVE YOU.

They will ALWAYS LOVE YOU, no matter where you all live.

They are not splitting up because of anything that you have done.

You may feel sad or upset but you will feel better.

Always talk to your Mum or Dad or another adult you can trust in the family.
