Stand Up for Children Affected by Divorce

Hot dogs, burgers, and fireworks, are the things the month of July is more often associated with. Still, it’s also a month that brings awareness to an issue in the American home that is very present and, unfortunately, on the rise—children affected by divorce and the effects it has on their mental health. July is National Child-Centered Divorce Month.

National Child-Centered Divorce Month is an amazing campaign that aims to spread awareness about the importance of prioritizing children’s well-being during and after divorce. This month-long initiative helps parents focus on their children’s needs, providing them with the love and support they need during this challenging time. By creating a child-centered approach to divorce, we foster healthy relationships between parents and their kids, ensuring a happier and brighter future for families. 

The History Behind the Campaign

National Child-Centered Divorce Month was first launched in 2007 to provide support and guidance to families going through the difficult process of divorce. The idea behind this month is to bring awareness to the importance of putting children’s needs first during and after a divorce.

Over the years, National Child-Centered Divorce Month has gained significant recognition and support from family law professionals, mental health experts, and organizations, parents, and educators across the country. It has become an annual event that celebrates the progress made in promoting child-centered divorce practices and encourages more families to adopt these principles.

This initiative is a testament to how much we can achieve when we come together with a shared goal of creating a better future for our children. By prioritizing our children’s well-being and helping them navigate the challenges of divorce, we can ensure that they grow up healthy, happy, and resilient.

It is heartening to see the positive impact that National Child-Centered Divorce Month has had on countless families over the years. Let us continue to spread its message far and wide so that more families can benefit from its wisdom and guidance. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of our children and the generations to come.

Let’s celebrate National Child-Centered Divorce Month by committing to our children’s well-being and creating a brighter tomorrow!
