Advice for Children of Separated Parents

By El, aged 17

Your parents are your parents no matter what and they will love you no matter what.  You are never to blame for their separation.  I think it is better for them to be separated and happy than together and not because that is not a healthy environment for a child to grow up in.  Ensure your voice is heard.  Keep your head up and remember you will get through it.
