It may feel like it in the beginning for some, particularly if there are children involved, but going through a divorce is not the end of the world. In fact, many can become better parents post divorce.
The Tulsa divorce lawyers at Fry & Elder want you to know that the adversity that comes with divorce can actually help lead you into becoming a better parent and role model for your children.
By Sharing Custody, You Make It A Point For Every Second to Counts
Little things that may have been a distraction to you in the past like your cell phone or making sure all your errands are done probably seem a little more trivial now. Instead, you are trying to pack in as much quality time with your child as possible because you just don’t have as much time before because of shared custody.
You Are Able To Teach Your Kids The Lifelong Lesson Of Resiliency
Let’s face it life isn’t always fair. It deals plenty of bumps and bruises along the way. How you bounce back from your divorce will go a long way in showing your child or children how to deal and fight through tough setbacks.
You Now Have The Ability To Start Up New Traditions
This might mean going on an annual trip during the summer or treating them to a special dinner on a more frequent basis. Heck it might mean, your children and you collaborate on dinners when they are with you, and you make them together in the kitchen. You now have the green light to test and try out things that you might not been able to before.
You Will Be Able to Keep a More Peaceful House
Those arguments that may have been nightly occurrences in the past, are just that – in the past. Not only will this provide more stability and balance for you it also will for your children. In turn, this will make all parties involved happier and more pleasant to be around.
