If a child shows signs of distress, the family doctor or pediatrician can refer the parents to a child and adolescent psychiatrist for evaluation and treatment.
She believes that kids should not be part of the post-divorce dating experience, even older kids.
“I can proudly say that in my nine years of post-divorce single life, I only introduce my kids to one guy, and he is now my husband,” she shares.
Instead, by allowing for a grace period, parents can focus on their kids during an important transitional period while also achieving stability in their own lives. Browne says parents should make sure not to involve their kids in their dating experiences. “I’m not a fan of families going camping together for the weekend before you are married,” she says.
