Helping your Child Survive DivorceBook - 1997
Helping Your Child Survive Divorce follows the divorce process from the roots of an unhappy household, through separation, the legal proceedings, custody and visitation, the postdivorce standard of living, the possibility of moving away from friends and school, and the lifelong process of dealing with divorced parents.
When the worst is over, what does the future hold? Parents may move on to new relationships, but children will live with the emotional repercussions of the divorce for the rest of their lives. Issues will arise -- health care decisions, school problems, choosing a college, getting married -- where both parents will be involved and the child may feel caught in the middle. Divorce is traumatic for all families, but with good parenting techniques, children can emerge from it mentally healthy and able to form lasting relationships. This book will help parents learn how to think first about what's best for their children by seeing divorce through the children's eyes.
