Children will both enrich and complicate your divorce. They'll be there to hug you when the going gets tough, make you laugh when you most need it, and give continued meaning to your life. However, they will need your care, support, and reassurance at a time when you have little energy left after taking care of yourself. Parenting during this time is likely to present new challenges. Stay calm and make an effort to work with your spouse to make it as easy as possible on your children.
