By Jerica C.
Virginia, Age 11

February 21,2008: Parents of 7 year old girl, Jerica, are separated. Her life will never be the same.She won't get to see her dad as much as she used to.Grades were slipping. Emotions rising.
DEALING WITH DIVORCE: I just want to let you know you're not the only one who's parents are divorced.As the story said, my parents were divorced when I was 7 years old. My mom has remarried and my dad is soon to be remarried.I have 4 step brothers and 1 step sister. My life is better now because I can see my dad more. At my age, I have the right to choose where I want to live. I'm thinking about living with my dad. If you're my age,you can choose where you want to live.
If you're still upset,try keeping a journal. If you want you can also talk to a teacher or other friends. Don't worry it'll get better.
