This is a part of family mediation when the mediator speaks to the children of the family where the parents are separated. There is an expectation now that children should be involved in the mediation process.
Sometimes you aren’t sure of what your children are really thinking. What do they think about the arrangements you are making for them?
Children often welcome the chance to be part of the process which is, after all, about them. They may find it difficult to tell you their true wishes and feelings, thinking you may be hurt.
At MSNW we are trained to talk to the children and will invite them in to an informal chat, if both parents agree to this happening.
