How do you tell your 4-year old child that you're getting divorced?


Understanding divorce is hard for children of all ages. How do you go about explaining it and helping a 4-year old, who's still learning about the basic concept of relationships, understand it?

    Great advice!

    As you noted it's important to make sure the child knows (both) parents still love and cherish the child. Their divorce has nothing to do with him/her.
