Growing Up with Divorce Helping your Child Avoid Immediate and Later Emotional Problems

The Free Press, 1990

The impact of separation upon children is not resolved once the divorce papers are signed. There are both short- and long-term challenges that children experience as they emotionally and intellectually develop. This book helps parents recognize adjustment issues that children experience at different ages with practical suggestions to help them cope better. A separate chapter is written to discuss the unique needs for each developmental period; toddler, pre-schooler, early elementary, later elementary school child, and adolescent. This can help the parent to better recognize the signs of distress and communicate with their child with greater effectiveness. ~ Stephen Douglas, 2006
