Separation is hard on parents – many couple only choose divorce if the conflicts haven’t been
leading to decisions. Separating from a partner with whom you have had children is a significant life
change and calls for a lot of your time in resolving legal processes, financial changes and the

from their parents by example. When parents show strength and acceptance in resolving conflicts,
children acquire a sense of responsibility and stability. Healthy separation leading to Co-parenting
promotes strong and happier children.
