It will make you smile!  This 14-year old said, “I feel the most relaxed and comfortable when I am at your house.

Here’s what Mom.me wrote about the effect of divorced parents on a child’s future relationship:

Divorce affects family members in many different ways, both positive and negative. While many children can foster healthy relationships post-divorce, some may experience challenges maintaining future relationships after coping with their parents’ divorce.

“When a child’s parents divorce, the experience always allows leaving a relationship to be a viable option versus hanging in and wrestling with working things out,” says Dr. Fran Walfish, Beverly Hills, Calif.-based psychotherapist and author of “The Self-Aware Parent.”

That’s why it’s important to teach your child about relationship-building for the future to ensure she can foster healthy relationships of her own, and be able to work things out with a partner if that’s a suitable option.

Imgur user nuthabrickindawall says his 14-year-old daughter gave him this touching letter for Christmas.

It reads:

Dear Daddy, Merry Christmas!! I know that this year the divorce was hard on us, but at the same time I feel like it brought you and me closer together. I feel like I could really tell you anything now, and I feel the most relaxed and comfortable when I am at your house. In other words, that’s why I usually ask to go to your house after dinner; it helps me to just have a moment to relax and have a loving, reassuring face to make me laugh. I love you so much Daddy!!

The Imgur user said, “My wife divorced me this year, tearing our family apart and breaking my heart. I adopted her daughter from her first marriage almost ten years ago. She is now 14-years-old. This is the letter she wrote to me for Christmas and my heart is exploding with pride and joy.

Please excuse me while I wipe my tears because this guy deserves this…
