So your parents have decided to split up. You probably have a lot of questions, like “What does this mean for me?” and “Do I still have a family?” or “Will I always feel this bad?” or “Will anyone listen to me?” You’re not alone. A lot of other children have wondered the same things.
You can find lots of stuff to help you understand what’s going on by clicking on the following pamphlet.
Produced by: Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General. This is a pamphlet for children whose parents separate or divorce. Separation or divorce is the result of problems between parents. It is not the children’s fault. The children can’t stop it from happening. But it does affect children a lot. You may have questions about the law of separation and divorce. This pamphlet’s goal is to try and answer those questions. This pamphlet is about law and does not talk about your feelings about separation and divorce. There is a list at the back which suggests some of the books you might want to read about how most children feel when their parents separate or divorce. There is a dictionary at the end for words you might not understand.
