Divorced parents still must fulfill their responsibilities to their kids, and in my view, children should have rights in divorced families. Here is my Children’s Bill of Rights in Divorce. If you can give yours children these freedoms, you will have gone a long way toward fulfilling your responsibilities as a parent.
Every child whose parents divorce has:
These rights have neither been defined by law nor can they be protected or enforced by any anyone but parents. To fully enforce and protect your child’s Bill of Rights in Divorce requires your constant vigilance in policing your words and actions, your unflagging commitment to shouldering burdens and making the hard choices that insulate your child from the adult issues of divorce. It’s a tall order, but your children deserve nothing less.
