Bertus Preller: Children's Needs Should Be Put First During Divorces or Separations
“The goal for divorced or separated parents should always be to maintain the best co-parenting relationships possible by moving past previous relationship issues and focusing on children’s well-beings,” says Betrus Preller, author of Everyone’s Guide to Divorce and Separation.
On his blog Preller writes that “a great percentage of parents that divorce or separate see conflict as an inevitable part of the process and are determined to fight battles in court” despite this not necessarily being in the best interest of their children.
The welfare of children in a divorce or separation is the most important aspect of any divorce. Although most couples believe children’s welfare is one of the most important factors to consider in a divorce, a great percentage of parents that divorce or separate see conflict as an inevitable part of the process and are determined to fight battles in court.
From time to time one comes across an intransigent parent who is incapable of objectivity when considering what is best for the child. It may well be that you do not like your partner, but the child’s view of the parent is different. He or she will have love and trust for that person, capable of transcending even the most dreadful scenes that may have been witnessed.
