The 9th annual International Child-Centered Divorce Month is being commemorated once again in January. The entire month is dedicated to alerting parents about the effects of divorce on children – especially the impact of parental decisions on their children’s well-being during and long after a divorce.
Throughout January divorce attorneys, mediators, therapists, financial planners, coaches, parenting experts and other professionals around the world will be providing free gifts to parents offering advice and insights to help them best cope with divorce and parenting issues.
More divorces are initiated in January, following the holiday season, than in any other month. That’s why the Child-Centered Divorce Network chose January to commemorate ICCD Month every year. The goal is to educate parents about how to prevent negative consequences for children during and after separation or divorce.
At the special website, parents can access free ebooks, coaching services, videos, audio programs and other valuable gifts by simply clicking links. The website will be available throughout January at: www.divorcedparentsupport.com/ebook.
Parents will also find listings of free workshops, teleseminars, webinars and other special events being held during January on the Events Calendar at the same website.
Divorce professionals around the world will be participating to illuminate parents about their responsibility to their children’s well-being before, during and after divorce. Our purpose is education and mistake prevention. We want to encourage respectful co-parenting, teach effective communication skills, and guide parents away from litigation and toward mediated solutions whenever possible.
As a divorced and later remarried parent, I initiated ICCD Month to remind parents of their responsibilities towards their innocent children when contemplating divorce. Parental decisions about divorce can affect and scar children – for years – and often for a lifetime. I want to tell divorcing parents: Regardless of your own emotional state, it is essential to put your children's needs first when making decisions related to divorce or separation!
