There is no question that children experience difficulties when their parents separate. Here is a book that provides hope that, by making good choices that account for their children’s needs, parents can help children successfully adjust to separation and divorce. This valuable reference includes clear and practical examples of how to talk with children about a pending separation, how to address a child’s fear of abandonment, how to respond to their fantasies about their parents reuniting, and to address their feelings of responsibility. There are also important guidelines for parents to follow to manage conflict between themselves and other behaviors which would be emotionally traumatic for children to experience or witness.
