If your parents fuss at you does it mean they don't love you? How can you tell if your father loves you, if he lives in another city? Are you "bad" when you get angry with your mother or father? Why is it a mistake to talk to one parent about another? Do you blame yourself for your parents' divorce?
This warm and honest book provides reassuring answers to these and many more crucial questions children ask about divorce.
Very well written. The children have a much better understanding of what happened 6 years ago. It seems as if they are able to cope better with the situation. Highly recommended.Published 15 months ago by Jim

This book is awful. It is hateful toward parents and I would never recommend that a child read it! It is ugly and negative and has no value for helping a child heal from divorce!Published on September 23, 2007 by Bonnie L. Olander
