Ever wondered what it would be like if kids could run the court system for a day?
A day where they get to make the decisions and advocate on their own behalf.
Ever wondered what they might ask for if they were appointed to be a divorce court judge for a day?
Let’s just imagine that they could sit down and write out a Bill of Rights regarding their parents’ divorce.
It might look something like this:
Letter to our Mom and Dad
Dear Mom and Dad,
We have decided on the following rights when it comes to the children (that’s us) during your divorce. Since we don’t get a say in whether you should or should not get divorced, and you didn’t involve us in the conversation—(hey, good job mom and dad as the involvement of your kids in the conversation should always be age appropriate)—we thought we would present you with this Children’s Bill of Rights. We hope you read it and listen to our most important requests.
Love, your children.
P.S. Please buy us candy.
