No one best way: I believe it's impossible to predict the BEST way to go about telling children about a divorce. The method should be one agreed-upon by both parents and I would think should involve either a family meeting or at least one parent telling both children at the same time. And then, the other parent having a conference if it's not possible to have the whole family together. Best of luck to you all.
