As a parent, it is natural to want to fight to protect your relationship with your child. However, in many cases, it is the fighting itself that does the most harm.
When a child is dragged through a contentious divorce, it can cause lasting psychological and emotional harm. The child will be put in a position where he or she may feel forced to choose sides.
