#Children's Rights
UK Parliament
United Kingdom

The UK kids are fed up with having their lives mucked about by fighting parents who don't know how to break-up and divorce without arguing and being horrible. It's time for the parents to listen to the children, and break up without all that aggro.

Please sign this petition to demonstrate your support for reassessing and changing the UK divorce laws to make break up less nasty. Recent statistics say that 10% of children in the UK demonstrate suicidal tendencies when their parents are breaking up - we think the law makes this situation worse, and want urgent action by government to change the way couples move through divorce and relationship break up.

This campaign is being led by Cydney, my 13 year old daughter, who has lived through my break up with her father and seen that even though we have our troubles, it IS possible to break up right, and not to fight. But divorce law seems to make this process much more difficult - and Cyd wants to support other kids in demanding that divorce laws should be changed to make the process less aggressive and frightening for the parents, and for parents to take more responsibility for not letting divorce become a battlefield, using the children as weapons.

Please show your support by signing this petition.

We, the undersigned, call on Parliament to create laws that make breaking up a less combative and life crushing experience for adults and children alike.
