I went through a divorce recovery group at my Dad's church a few months after we separated. My son started counseling about a year and a half after we split. He was having anger issues and a lot of it stemmed from the divorce and the fact that his Dad .... Well, doesn't matter now. Writing it all down will just piss me off again It helped him a lot.
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.
