Divorce is hard enough on a family as it is. That is why it is critical for you to do everything you can to protect your children before, during, and after a divorce.

No one intends to make it hard on their kids, but if you’re not mindful, it can happen easier than you think.

During a divorce, especially in child custody cases, an angry parent can belittle, criticize, shut out, or verbally destroy the other parent in the eyes of the children. This is done for lots of reasons. Some might try to punish an ex-spouse or gain sympathy from the child. Others act out in an effort to gain more child support. And sometimes, the alienating parent thinks the child belongs to them.
