La pregunta de hoy es: ¿Qué y cómo les digo a mis hijos que sus padres han decidido divorciarse?

[YOUTUBE:1-cBfYofS8s]

Esta es una pregunta muy común en las parejas que tienen hijos y que están pasando el proceso de divorcio. Pero recomiendo primero que nada que tengas un plan - lo que vas a decir. Y también el lugar, que sea apropiado, porque el divorcio con niños es muchísimo más difícil que si fuera nada…

The question I'm going to be discussing today: Would any counselor be okay to see or should they hold specific qualifications?
