Divorce: Stay Engaged and Remember to Hug Your Children


Divorce: Stay Engaged and Remember to Hug Your Children

Marla Gilsig recently published a new post discussing How To Successfully Parent After Separation and Divorce .

This blog reviews how to help children adjust to two homes, parenting times and parenting responsibilities and the importance of staying emotionally engaged.

Marla notes that “Children of all ages need hugs and hearing “I love you” and “I’m proud of you”. Parents need to ensure that their children know that they matter and are valued more than anything or anyone and that their parents love for them is far more powerful than the negative feelings they have for their former spouse.”

We will be featuring Marla Gilsig this Friday as a part our interview series with lawyers from across Canada (and beyond).
