How do I help my kids let go?
My children are enduring their parents being divorced. While we do our best to make the environment kind and healthy, it still takes a toll on the kids. Recently I mentioned packing some toys to take to the goodwill and my kids started freaking out. Two of them started crying. This has NEVER been an issue before the divorce. We took toys and other things to the goodwill regularly. I'm thinking they are growing attached to "things" to create a stability around them. I'm concerned about this and unsure how to deal with it. On one hand I want to help them be strong and let go. But on the other, I feel like I should not interrupt their efforts to stabilize their own emotions. Any suggestions?
