How do we tell the kids?

Preparing You and Your Children for Two Homes

Unhealthy Relationships Can End in Healthy Ways

The decision to separate is underwritten by courage. Beyond the end of this relationship lies the powerful beginning to two homes filled with love, security and connection for your kids. At this pivotal moment, the steps you take can pave the way towards a future where everyone thrives, especially your children.

Guiding Your Children Through Change

In this session with Tiffany, we'll explore your unique situation to help you both develop a thoughtful, effective plan for navigating this sensitive process.

Initial Preparation

Upon booking your consultation, you'll receive specially tailored online materials. These resources are designed to cultivate a constructive mindset, help you clarify your key questions and concerns, and ensure a productive, focused consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access the preparation resources?

Upon booking your consultation we will email you your login credentials to our online course portal. We’re always here to help you navigate any technical issues or questions you may have.

How are the consultations conducted?

Your comfort and convenience are paramount. Consultations are offered both via Zoom and in person, depending on your location and preference. Whichever format you choose, we ensure a confidential and secure environment for your discussions.

What if one consultation isn't enough?

Every family's journey is unique. In our experience, many families have found just one consultation is sufficient to clarify the right track.

What outcomes can I expect from this service?

Post-consultation, you can expect to have a clear roadmap for guiding your children through your initial separation, how to structure the timing and content of informing the kids and a plan for the first eight weeks of co-parenting after separation.
