Emotional family trauma


After watching Dr Foster this evening, I was aware of the huge emotional impact that the child was under. This program highlights the emotional trauma of a break-up within a family. Yes this is a program, possibly hyped up for TV. However there is no denying that children are the injured party in family break-up and should be remember when the shouting, name calling, and fighting for custody is taking place. This kind of trauma can stay with a child for life if it is not dealt with in a safe way.
If you are a child who is struggling with your emotions please find somebody to speak to, a friends mum, a school counsellor, child line or your teacher.
If your are in a relationship going through this, would mediation, couples counselling or individual counselling help you to find a middle ground? Remember talking helps to find resolution.
