How can I help my kids understand they have not been rejected?

Helping Your Kids Deal With Rejection

Your children know you love them, but what about their other parent. It is important to communicate to your children that the other parent still loves them, but that sometimes people move in different directions and want different things from life. However, that does not mean they no longer love them. Their priorities are just different and we have to accept people for what they are—not try to change them to be what we want them to be. If you love someone enough, you set them free. Help them to understand they can love you both without feeling guilty.
