Life Leadership with Alex Urbina - October 14, 2013
On today’s show, Alex and Wendy sit down and talk about the issue of divorce and what that brings upon not just those involved but the surrounding people involved.
How do we have a divorce and not have it effect our kids in a negative way, Alex said.
We all know someone who has been affected by divorce. It is hard to deal with because it is a new life road bump that comes along.
It shifts your world and it shifts your kids world, Alex said.
In divorce there had to be signs that you overlooked or ignored that drove you and your spouse to divorce as a viable option.
How do you create a safe space for kids that are going through divorce and the heartache that it brings.
A lot of the times kids create self-limiting beliefs that for the most part are not true, Alex said.
At a young age, they usually haven’t developed enough to see divorce or problems with their parents not a part of them and create a scenario in which the divorce is their fault.
One thing that also is important is allowing your kids each one to have their own process. One might be adjusting well, however the others or one might be having a hard time. It is okay, but you as a parent do not need to freak out. That is part of them and their personality, as along as you are committed to them that is enough and let it be, Alex said.
When I think about divorce I feel the parents have to be more involved with their kids but during this time they are at default and are having a hard time to give when they are vulnerable.
