10 Top Tips for Parents

  • Conflict is the major cause of unhappiness and poor outcomes for children
  • Children need reassurance that their parents still love them
  • Children need reassurance that what has happened is not their fault
  • Children and young people need information about what is happening in their family – in ways they can understand – and without a blow by blow account or whose fault it is
  • Children do not want to take sides – do not make them
  • Children benefit from keeping contact with both parents – and their wider family
  • Children will tell each parent what they want to hear – opposing views are not uncommon
  • Children can cope with short-term disruption in their lives – as long as parents continue to support them
  • Children cope best when they can go easily between their two homes
  • Children need their parents to make decisions
  • Most of all – look after yourself so you can look after your children
