    Victoria: What I found very useful on this aitrcle is that they advice to set rules for the kids. I have seen many cases in which parents spoil their kids as a way to make up for the divorce, and they keep doing it for years. This only makes things worse, for both parents and kids. Having rules and following schedules make kids more secure and also feeling better in the environment they live, even if it went through some changes.
