Keep talking with young children long after the divorce. 

One of the best ways to help young children cope with anything difficult is to consistently and openly talk about it with them.  An important part of this is to allow them to share without judgment and to refrain from projecting your feelings or fears onto them. 

To support kids long after the divorce, keep open lines of communication to ensure you’re up to speed with how they are coping and being proactive about any maladjusted behaviors.
