How does family mediation help children ?
Where children are involved, it’s important for them to be able to see that their parents are co-operating and helping the family to move forward as a unit rather than bickering and struggling to come to an agreement.
The mediation process is usually very successful in showing the children that despite the family breakup, their parents can get on together and work together to agree on future arrangements. This is incredibly important for children, especially teenagers and older children.
