Video Transcribed: Are you looking for some tips on fathering through divorce? I’m I’m the Tulsa Father’s Rights Lawyer. And this is 10 tips for fathering during divorce.
Number one, show your children you love them. Allow them to feel nurtured by you. Let them know that they will be supported by you and your spouse throughout.
Number two, except your feelings as normal and allow your children to express their feelings. Accepting and expressing your feelings together will be beneficial for both parent and child.
Number three, reassure your child that they are at no fault for the divorce or separation.
Number four, meet your own expectations and needs for support from adults in your lives. Otherwise, the children may fill the gap and this will not be in their best interests.
Number five, maintain continuity in their lives. Try and locate yourself near the old neighborhood. Avoid scheduling interruptions and keep them in the same schools. Involve them in the same extracurricular activities and generally try to promote continuity in the next chapter.
Number six, establish a visitation schedule that promotes significant contacts with both parents.
Number seven, don’t subject your children to the hostility of your relationship with the co-parent. Allow them to have their own separate relationships.
Number eight, don’t encourage your child to take sides in any battle between the two of you. It’s important that the child is able to maintain neutrality and is free from as much of the marital conflict as possible under the circumstances.
Number nine, don’t overindulge your children. They need to maintain the same structure and respect for your discipline.
Number ten, unless you suspect abuse or neglect, don’t question your child about their time with the other parent or about the other parents life.
