The best strategy is that the parent should go with the child to the school that the child attends and let the school know about the divorce status (Cottongim, 2002). Schools are so important today in helping divorced children. They have divorce councillors who talk to the children effectively. This may not be done by the parent staying with the child because of emotional instability.
It could be difficult for the practitioner because the practitioner may not be a native resident of the community and hence may not know the cultural beliefs of the community. Some cultural beliefs directly affect family structures.
