When a marriage ends, there are repercussions for the whole family. Children of any age can be angry, confused, and fearful about the future. The younger the child, the less they are able to understand divorce. Parental divorce can be a major turning point in the life of a child. If handled well, a child can move on with minimal emotional and psychological consequences. Pathways Counseling Services, a Scottsdale counseling practice, can help a child understand that the divorce is not their fault and that their parents still love and care for them.
