The most important issue to deal with when separating is your relationship with your children. Although your relationship with your partner is changing, your role as a parent is for life. Your children, whatever their age, need you both to put them first. This booklet is for parents of teenagers who are separating or divorcing. When parents separate, it is a painful and stressful experience for a family. Every family member needs help and support to cope with the emotional consequences and changes it brings.
