Get little ones ready for the new season with fun colorful spring art activities for kids. The "colored leaves" is a fingerprint stamping art project and cool indoor spring activity for preschoolers.
Children face different situations daily that can generate negative feelings such as frustration, sadness, anger, pain, and stress. On many occasions, children are not prepared to deal with these feelings adequately. One of the most common situations that children have to go through, which can leave negative consequences for the rest of their lives, is divorce.
Explaining to children that their parents are separating is a difficult task. However, both parents must be present at the time of doing so. During the conversation, it is essential that they do not raise their voices and that the message is clear, considering each child's developmental stage.
However, it is much more important to make it clear that nothing is their fault. Children do not express their feelings easily, so parents must emphasize that the child is not guilty of causing this disruption. Parents should work to leave no doubt in the child's mind when explaining this to their children. Many children carry this feeling of guilt even though their parents have told them otherwise.
Children will have to face different changes, so you must provide them with as much information as possible regarding the changes that their life will have, as honestly as possible. Thus, it is unnecessary to give all the details of the separation, neither blaming the other parent for what happened.
Not all children will react in the same way, so it is essential that they feel accompanied in this process. It does not matter that children express sadness, stress, or anger. Those are normal and acceptable feelings.
For children to be victorious in this situation, it is imperative to be accompanied by their parents and to be able to carry out different activities that allow them to focus their attention on other things.
An excellent alternative to help children express their feelings is art. When children can not verbally express what they feel, they do so freely when working on activities in their safe place. In addition to this, it improves cognitive processes and their motor skills. It is an excellent activity to share with children and free them from stress.
