Getting your Children Through Divorce
A Parent's Guide to SeparationBook
Author Anne Hooper has radically re-written and modernized this vital resource book of the past 30 years, formerly titled Divorce and Your Children, to suit the needs of today's separating and divorcing parents. Ultimately child-centered, it informs parents how to tell your children about your separation, how to answer their questions, what kind of behavior to expect, and the best methods of parenting. At least 1 in 3 children will experience parental separation before the age of 16. Each child goes through a period of unhappiness, but if parented well is likely to be helped back into good communication with Mom and Dad and settle into a normal pattern of development. Previously recommended to divorcing couples by Family Court judges, Getting Your Children Through Divorce offers sound advice, coping strategies, psychological overviews, and parenting insight.
