Did you go when you divorced or separated from your ex? Did/do the kids go to counseling now? If you went or are going, how much do you think it helped you or your kiddos?

Yes I went. My divorce was very, very messy and challenging.

DD also went but it was a few years later. Hers was mostly to deal with an mentally unstable bio dad. She went weekly for 1 year. It did wonders! I'm so glad I did it.

Did you go when you divorced or separated from your ex?
My DH is the one who divorced, not me. But he did go briefly. I currently do right now to manage this stressful family situation.

Did/do the kids go to counseling now?
They both do.

If you went or are going, how much do you think it helped you or your kiddos?
It helps me a lot. I think SD has benefited from it, too. SS is having lots of issues still and doesn't seem to be buy the whole therapy thing. He's great at telling people what they want to hear. One concern I have is that the same therapist sees both kids, so maybe they are uncomfortable sharing because they think the other will find out. We also have regular convos with their doc so I'm sure they are censoring themselves on some level.
