As the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce issue keeps churning, the hardest hit are the children. Though Jolie and the kids have found sanctuary decamping to their new rented Hidden Hills estate, they are still smarting from the painful turn of events and have undergone therapy.
Pitt, who is said to be devastated, has stated that the children’s well-being remains topmost in mind. On the other hand, Jolie continues to be “strong for the kids” and is bent on taking the path to healing, even as events that unfolded the past several weeks have often been “wrongfully portrayed,” PEOPLE.com reported.
As psychologists confirm, divorce ushers massive changes into the lives of children whose parents split up. The broken marital commitment, the void left by a parent, the numerous adjustments can lead to many questions and behavioral responses in the kids.
Jolie and Pitt realized that early on, and have done what they could to cushion the emotional impact on their kids Maddox, 15; Pax, 12; Shiloh, 10; Zahara, 11; and the twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have considered the best interests of the kids, and are out to ensure their safety, health and healing. However, the famous couple cannot totally shield the children from the prying eyes of the public, and the fact that the kids have seen how their family unit has been divided into two different households.
The presence of a therapist has been factored in the temporary plan recommended by the Department of Children and Family Services that Jolie agreed to. A therapist will be present when Pitt makes his initial visit to the children.
For now, the children continue to engage in the activities they have become accustomed to in their new home with their watchful mom. To date, news of the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt continues to unravel, leaving fans sad but hopeful that the couple will work things out.
