Transitions and change are a common part of life but no matter how common they are they never really seem to get easier. Each change has a different set of situations, thoughts, and feelings which need to be appropriately addressed for one to adapt to changing circumstances. There are endless examples of life transitions in adulthood but common ones may include ending a relationship or marriage, moving cities, changing jobs, having children, a change in financial situations, losing a loved one, and retirement. If adults struggle with transitions it’s no surprise that it can be detrimental for children if the transition are not handled with care and in a developmentally appropriate way. Divorce, illness or loss of a loved one, and moving are the most common struggles that require support for our youth.
