Divorced Girl Smiling offers 17 things you can say to reassure children transitioning through their parents’ separation and divorce.
Jackie Pilossoph writes (excerpt of 3 of 17):
There are going to be lots of changes, but here is what won’t change. My love for you and your mom’s (or dad’s) love for you. Both are constant and ever lasting.
You are special and you mean everything to me. I feel such gratitude that I’m your mom (or dad.)
The best thing I ever did was have you.
