Supporting your children or teens through separation - what can ease the way?

Practical ideas, resources and information. When parents part it’s tough on everyone, but research shows there are some key approaches that can positively assist children and teens through this difficult time, and in the years that follow.

Skylight will share real stories, practical ideas, core information and some helpful resources to help parents, grandparents or other family members more confidently help young people they know in this situation.
