The lack of communication will manifest itself in other areas and the children’s relationship with the other parent will be undermined as one parent becomes more and more manipulative. Many different actions can constitute a violation of court orders. Perhaps a mother is told by the court that she can visit her children but her boyfriend cannot be present because he has a criminal record, so she tries to include the boyfriend without anyone learning about it. Or a father keeps showing up for his assigned visitations but the mother isn’t there with the children when she is supposed to be.
When the children were brought to me for counseling, they cried because they didn’t understand what their mother was doing. They had no stability at home because from one minute to the next they couldn’t predict if their mother was going to call them names, throw things at them, scream at them, or not recognize them. At one point, Ellen flew to Arizona, never telling Robert about the trip, and the children came home from school to an empty house. Mindy, the youngest of the girls, stood on the front stoop crying uncontrollably because she didn’t know where her mother was and thought no one was home because the house was on fire.
Children may no longer want to participate in dance classes or the soccer league. They may drop out of extracurricular activities in school such as clubs, band, athletics, and community volunteering. Look for these signs that the upheaval at home is spilling over into school, and don’t wait to act: r Your child starts coming home without books, homework, or both, and makes lame excuses. Call his or her teacher and ask about homework and your child’s performance in general. Explain your concern, and if you have not already told the school about your divorce, you may do so.
