Conflict can have some serious long-term effects on children. Studies have shown that it’s not the separation or divorce itself that has an impact, but rather the conflict stemming from it that often has a detrimental impact on their well-being.

Resolution members are committed to reducing conflict, agreeing to a non-confrontational way of working that puts the best interests of children first. 

As can be seen from the below statistics, it is so important to communicate openly and effectively with your children about what is going on. Children can often feel left in the dark which can be hugely unsettling. 

Parents who choose to work collaboratively or through mediation can often spend time discussing what they are going to say to their children about the separation. Being able to communicate with each other can make communication with children seem less daunting.
