#1
Feeling Loved
Spend quiet time with your child just snuggling and letting him know how much you love him.
#2
It's Not Your Fault
Assure your child that a divorce is a grown-up issue and he did nothing to cause the divorce.
#3
Create a Calendar
Look at a calendar together as you talk about where your child will be on each day.
#4
Answering Questions
Take time to talk and listen to your child's questions and concerns.
#5
How Are You Feeling?
Ask, "How are you feeling?" If she can't tell you, give her some crayons and paper and ask, "Can you draw a picture that shows how you feel?"
#6
Spending Time Together
Spend time just having fun. Take turns tossing a ball into a bucket or making a fort with blocks. Remind your child that, no matter what, she can still do things she likes.
