Movies to Help Kids Understand Divorce
Divorce is a fact of life for many families. Kids often aren't sure what to expect with this major life change, and they're likely to have questions and concerns. These movies provide different takes on divorce: Some are serious, and some are silly; some are kid friendly, while others are better for teens and up. And because they are, after all, made in Hollywood, some of these movies provide an unrealistic notion about reconciliation. But all of them can help open up a conversation on this tough topic, especially if you use the conversation starters we offer in each review.
