Next week is National Family Week (you watch, there’ll be greetings cards for it in years to come). Families, of course, come in all shapes and sizes, and the end of a relationship doesn’t have to result in the breakdown of a family.
At Latimer Hinks, I see separating parents daily who desperately want to help their children to deal with the effects of divorce and separation, but they often don’t know where to turn for information, advice or support. Resolution, the national family lawyers association, has developed its “Parenting after Parting” initiative, which aims to help separating parents through this difficult time with advice and information on how to talk to children about divorce or separation. Help is available online at www.resolution.org.uk/parentingafterparting
