'Jon & Kate' split has kids asking about divorce
With the stars of the hit reality show "Jon and Kate Plus 8" splitting up, child health experts say children could start asking questions about divorce.
Dr. Lawrence Shapiro, a child psychologist in Norwalk, says parents need to be straightforward and honest with their kids. "If you talk to children and are open, then I think they can understand," he says.
Shapiro also says it's important for young kids to know that just because a couple fights, it doesn't mean they're getting a divorce.
As for Jon and Kate, their television show is on hiatus. A spokesman for TLC says there won't be any new episodes until August.
