Divorce hurts: What should Becca do?
What can i do if my parents are divorced and i am getting emotional more and more?
We love our parents and we'd prefer that they would stay together forever. But it doesn't always happen. When parents get divorced, it can feel like you're being pulled in two directions. It sounds like Becca is feeling this way.
You can hear what other kids have to say about divorce in this video. It's a trailer for a show that will be on HBO. Maybe Becca could see if her Mom or Dad would watch it with her?
Becca says she's feeling emotional, so I am guessing it would be good for her to talk to someone about what specifically is bothering her. It might take a while to figure it out, exactly. It might help to write down some thoughts, like in a journal. Or even draw pictures.
Who to talk to? Start with Mom, Dad, or a grandma or other relative. You could also try a school counselor. Talking to a caring grownup is an important step that Becca can take toward feeling better.
