Picking up pieces after families split up
When parents divorce, they are not the only ones who feel the effects.
Their children are impacted as well.
“The statistics on the number of children of divorced parents that end up turning to drugs, sex, alcohol or a generally ‘high-risk’ activity are staggering,” said Donna Bernard. “We visit with the kids and give them tools to express their emotions about what they’re going through. We hope they will go ahead and work through it, and if they are unhappy with their parents for doing this, they can find a way to forgive their parents.”
