It’s been traumatic for them
As a child survivor of divorce, I can attest firsthand to the traumas it can inflict on young kids. It’s no joke. Even if the split is totally amicable (which in my parents’ case it most definitely was not) it isn’t easy for kids to accept that their family dynamic has suddenly changed for good, and that both parents won’t be living in the same house anymore.
I can only imagine that Brad Pitt and Angelina’s six children are really struggling right now, not only because of the bombshell news, but also because they are basically quarantined in Angelina’s rental and have reportedly only seen their father once in two weeks.
So it doesn’t really come as a surprise that they are already in therapy working through their emotions.
The Hollywood couple are now trying to pick up the pieces left after their split and hoping to make this as easy on their kids as possible.
