What do I do? - January 25th 2009, 05:37 PM

I don't know what to do. My dad and mom are always fighting and my dad just said that he is ready to get divorced. And I think he is serious. I asked him if he meant it and he said yes. And they are continuing to argue. It never stops. What do I do? Think? I'm in uni so I live there most of the time and I have somewhere I could stay because I refuse to choose between my parents. But I have two younger sisters who are in school. They're stuck.

Hey there Brittney,

A divorce is a big process and definitely one that is difficult on the family. If your parents do go through with it, then the best thing to do would be to make sure your sisters are handling it okay. The best way to do this would be to let them know that even though your parents are splitting up, they still care about all of their children and only want the best for them. Make sure you spend some time with your sisters and help them through it.

If your sisters need to choose who they want to stay with, then you could help them make a reasonable decision. The best thing would be to make sure they aren't completely uprooted and taken away from their school and friends. If there is one responsible parent that is staying in the house they have now, it's probably best for them to stay there.

All the best to you and your family.

Everyone has a story. What's yours?
