Parenting your children after a divorce isn't easy at all. Some parents fall into a negative mode of thinking that makes it much more difficult than it has to be. Changing your frame of mind into one that is positive and embraces the change is one of the best things that you can do for yourself and your children.

Divorce has a way of bringing extreme levels of stress into your life. This is even more the case if you have questions and concerns about child custody, such as when you'll get to spend time with your children throughout the year.
Divorce can be a stressful journey. You are bidding adieu to the life to which you've grown accustomed while you are embarking on a new, single life. On top of the legal process that you have to go through, you also need to think about the logistics that accompany the end of a marriage. We know this isn't easy, but if you plan ahead for what's to come, you might feel less stress.
When you divorce, your child has to learn how to treat each parent's family as a separate entity. In the past, they just had aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. Now, these might be identified by to which parent they are related. This is a difficult adjustment for many children.
Child support cases aren't always easy to handle. Both of the parents might be concerned about how much these support payments are going to be. The paying parent likely hopes that the payments don't take up too much money. Recipient parents probably hope the money can actually help with the many costs of raising the children.
