Children don't always understand why their parents do the things they do. They may blame themselves for things they had nothing to do with or believe that their parents dislike or hate them even though that thought has never crossed their parents' minds.
When a divorce begins, children may not be sure how to handle it. It's a responsibility of parents to make sure the children involved feel loved and are taken care of as much as possible during this difficult time. In a child's eyes, a divorce may seem like the end of the world.
