In my work with children, I am constantly reminded of how important it is to communicate and work with them in ways that align with their developmental stage. Deciding to separate with your child(ren)'s other parent is one thing, explaining that to your child is another thing. This article moves through toddlers up to teens. It explains what they understand at that stage of development, the key thoughts that may come up for them, and what to look out for. This is a great quick guide to addressing your child's needs in the midst of change. The article also offers some book suggestions for different ages at the end.
