My husband and I are going through a horrible custody battle and my kids are definitely getting caught in the middle. I overheard my daughter and son talking the other night, and they were saying that my husband and I no longer care for them, that all we care about was making sure the other one got as little as possible. This isn't totally the case, but i think there is a grain of truth in what they said. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to keep focused on your children while battling divorce?

Its amazing how kids can see the truth in even the most adult situations. If you want to keep the focus on your children well, then, keep telling yourself that. Everytime you find yourself getting angry at your ex, take a moment to step back from the situation and ask yourself "is this really the best thing for my children?" Sometimes just taking a break from all the anger and emotions that go along with a divorce can help you get a bit of persepctive. Good Luck!!

When you are in the heat of battle it's hard to see the big picture, but you can if you will just step back and see how all this will impact your children in the future as well as their needs right now. What you and your husband say and do will impact their emotional health as well as their physical health. The best of everything to you and yours!

I can kida relate to your situation. I have come to relize the best thing to do is not talk about what is going on while the kids are in the house or awake. Sure they probably know what is going on but it is bes not to talk about it infront of them.

communication at all times, talk about your feelings, listen to theres, to what they have to say very imporatant be honest on the level kids are a lot more inteligent or on the ball of whats going on around them so don't decieve them tell it like it is
