How do divorces effect children during the Summer?

As summer comes to a close, women who are considering divorce may find themselves overwhelmed with the thought of starting the process.

As a professional divorce coach, I know that one of the biggest concerns for many stay-at-home-moms is the financial impact of a divorce. It's important to have a plan in place before initiating the process. This may include opening a separate bank account, gathering financial documents, and creating a budget. Additionally, seeking the guidance of a financial coach can help ensure that you are making sound decisions for your future financial stability. Remember, starting a divorce can be emotional and challenging, but having a plan in place can make the process smoother and less daunting.

As a divorce coach, I have often been asked whether waiting until the end of summer to tell children about divorce is a good idea. On the one hand, it may provide a buffer period where the children can enjoy their summer without any added stress. On yet an other hand, it may prolong the pain and anxiety parents feel regarding the situation. 

If you're a stay-at-home mom planning to divorce, it's crucial to consider the financial implications and have a solid plan in place before making any moves. Remember a professional coach can provide personalized guidance and support throughout this challenging process.

If you are considering waiting until the end of summer to tell your children about the divorce, there are pros and cons to consider.


On the positive side, it can allow your kids to finish out the summer without added stress. It can also give you time to plan a strategy for what lies ahead.

However, waiting too long could also lead to the children feeling deceived or betrayed. When preparing to tell your children, it's important to set aside time to have a heartfelt discussion.

Moving from summer vacations to school schedules can be a difficult adjustment for children, even without the added stress of a divorce. By following these tips, you can help your children cope with the divorce and make the transition to school easier.

I often work with women who have been stay-at-home-moms navigating the challenges of divorce. With the additional stress of transitioning from summer vacations to school schedules, the adjustment can be particularly difficult for children. 

As a financial coach, I know that this time of year can also be financially tough when it comes to purchasing new school supplies and clothing. 

However, by following simple tips and strategies, such as maintaining open communication with your children and creating a structured routine, you can help your family cope with the changes and make the transition as smooth as possible.
