Thousands of kids experience the stress of divorce each year.
How they react depends on their age, personality, and the circumstances of the separation and divorce process.
In this week's Love Essentially, I offer a look at Illinois law when it comes to who pays for college in a divorce.
Unfortunately, divorced people are required by law to contribute to their kids' college education, while married couples are not. If you're not familiar with collaborative divorce, read this wonderful guest post that describes the process and why it might work for you!

Remember that kids don't need to know all the reasons behind a divorce (especially if it involves blaming the other parent).
Most kids will feel they're to blame even after parents have said that they're not.
So it's vital for parents to keep giving this reassurance.
Tell your kids that sometimes adults change the way they love each other or can't agree on things and so they have to live apart.
But remind them that kids and parents are tied together for life, by birth or adoption.
As soon as you're certain of your plans, talk to your kids about your decision to live apart.
