Monday morning, on the way to work, I see two cars coming from different directions, coming together at a designated meeting spot. A young teenager hops out of one car and jumps into the other. Going from Dad’s care, to Mum’s care, or vice versa. I’ve seen it happen before with this particular family, and it gets me thinking every time:
- What’s it like to be a young person and have 2 different households?
- What goes through your mind as you leave one parent, and reengage with the other?
- How does starting your day that way effect how your secondary school day goes?
Here’s what I DO know … every time we talk about divorce from the stage in our ministry, the room gets very, very quiet.
