CHILDREN OF PARENTS UNDERGOING DIVORCE
It’s the saddest part of my job. When divorcing parents are working together, that’s great! Unfortunately, I only see this 50% of the time. The Florida courts have mandatory courses for parents undergoing this. Sometimes, it works. Sometimes, it is to the benefit of the children for the parents to get divorced. They are not witness to unhappy relationships, exposed to the stress of the relationship and less likely to have the parents take their frustrations out on them. Post-divorce children are more adaptive then one would think. I just wish all parents would take the “best interests of the minor children” doctrine a lot more seriously.
