Divorce can have many effects on the gifted child.  Children can develop insecurities  and fears for the future.  There are many changes that happen through the process of a divorce - changes in parenting styles, living arrangements, even schools and access to their friends.  How you approach the divorce process can help alleviate some of these stressors for the child. It is vital to focus on your children's feelings and put aside your own feelings when assisting with your child's adjustment to the divorce. Remember that gifted children are very insightful, overexciteable, and complex thinkers and may ask some very difficult questions.
