Welcome to our section for parents going through separation or divorce.
Please read through all sections of this website as this may help you to discover a way to move forward. Take care of yourself and look forward to better times.
Here you will find articles about helping children through this process, how to maintain contact and how domestic abuse affects children.
There are sources of support and advice, access to helplines and recommended websites. These include information about lone parenting, socialising with your children and support for mental health problems.
We have separate sections for Children and Teenagers/Young adults. There's also a main legal and financial section which discuss your obligations to your children. We are always here to help.
'Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's
longing for itself. They came through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong
not to you.
You may give them your love
but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls.
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit,
not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward, nor tarries with yesterday.'
Khalil Gibran The Prophet 1923 On Children.
