Tips for supporting children through tough transitions

  • Predictability is key.  Let children know when they will be picked up from school/day care.  Don’t promise to “try’ to pick up child early unless you are positive you can do so.  Otherwise, the child is forced to wonder if mom/dad are coming and that sets them up for worry.
  • Plan your week.  Let the child know the routine each day (i.e. Monday is karate, Tuesday is soccer, etc.).  In cases of divorce, make a calendar to highlight who will be the parent picking up/dropping off each day.
  • Help to decrease your kids anxiety.  Kids have a wonderful way of sensing our own anxieties and fears.  When they sense that we worry, they worry.  Do your best to put on a brave face (even when you’re not feeling particularly brave).
