Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The adults who love them want to know, "How can I help?" Based on research and interviews with single parents and children, Children of Divorce provides a sympathetic, insightful answer to their question. It shows: -How to tell your child about divorce -How children respond to divorce according to their age -How to help children grow spiritually -How parents, grandparents, church workers, and teachers can help children of divorce -- This realistic yet compassionate book tells the truth about divorce -- how it forever changes the lives of those it touches. It speaks candidly about how children respond to divorce and the changes it imposes on their lives. But Children of Divorce also tells the truth about how Christianity in action can make a difference.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Both as a pastor who gives this book as the best resource to those involved with helping children through split homes and as a divorced father who's daughter still has emotional scar tisuue, this book provides great advice.
Unique is this book's advice given by sex of the child, by age and then by relationship to the child, i.e. grandparent, spouse who has custody, non-custodial parent, church, school, etc.
So well done, emphasizing the two main thoughts that stay with divorced children and how to help them with these two.

It is very good in practical matters and makes clear that the parents must forget about their own problems as partners in order to be best parents after the separation. Children are the must important target in the negotiation process.
