100 dating divorced single parent
The child may only know that Mom or Dad is not taking them where they want to go but not that it is not affordable.
I have spoken with many adults who, as children, “got to choose” where to live when their parents divorced.Children are not marginalized by having no voice, nor are they given the burden of deciding.It is the responsibility of the parents to protect their children from whatever conflict they might have and act together for the benefit of their children. The preceding article was solely written by the author named above.For example: A significant number of NLMS prefer to live alone.They may or may not have very close friends who may or may not be sexual partners.do I understand correctly that the statistic that single adults are a majority is based on the percentage of adults who are not currently legally married?
If so, my experience is this group (NLMs for not legally married) has a very diverse set of life situations and aspirations.
When parents cannot have these conversations, even with help, they often find themselves bringing their indecision to court for a judge to intervene.
Some parents try to influence their children to see the situation as they do.
This will often be an additional burden on the child who does not want to disappoint this parent or feels inadequate to resist their influence and also wants to maintain his or her relationship with the other parent. This is one of the most difficult experiences a child can have while already having to face all the changes due to the divorce itself.
And, it is the type of behavior that is often seen as alienating by the other parent.
In retrospect, they regretted having made a decision that was honored, feeling guilty about the parent they did not choose and feeling the tug of loyalty between the two people who brought them into the world.
