Diane & Rick help a mom with a daughter who is angry at her because she had an affair on her dad. How much detail do kids need about their parents’ breakup? What value is the “truth” in these situations? Listen to a discussion about how children form their identities through what they believe about their parents and how to protect a child’s self-esteem by limiting negative information about the divorce.
Diane mentioned a 2018 study about how adult children of divorce struggle with the parent who badmouthed their other parent when they were children. We couldn’t locate the exact study mentioned, but here is an article that discusses this topic in detail (with various studies cited).
