Thank you for exploring my new book, "Co-parenting Works! Helping Your Children Thrive After Divorce." This book was written to bring hope and encouragement to single parents and step parents who are raising children between two homes. 
This is also a great resource to grandparents and friends who love and care for co-parents and children. We also encourage counselors, divorce attorneys and educational leaders to consider this as a critical resource to parents who need direction on how to work with their former spouse.

We are here to advocate for the children (of all ages!) and help parents work together, not against each other, for the long term sake of the children!

Sincerely,
Tammy Daughtry (author)

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book was offered at a perfect time in my life. My husband and I are separated. While our goal is reconciliation I know that the fork in the road can go either way. We have a 2 year old daughter. The goal is to share custody of her. Initially my husband made some poor choices and I was afraid I would have to do something legally. Fortunately we are now using co-parenting and doing it in a positive manner.

I have to warn you that this book has Christian undertones. I am more than open to that, however, some people may not like that. While this book is not about divorce the author does address it. I needed to read that. As a person who has never gone through a separation I feel like I am divorcing and all the emotions that come with it. I was raised in a "no-divorce" household so going through this has been challenging. Hearing the author's personal story, as well as others, has been reassuring.

She gives the steps for sharing the parenting responsibilities whether you are divorced or you and your child's other parent have never even been married. She also gives you help in case things don't go right.

I highly recommend this book for people whether they are single parents, separated or divorced. It is well worth it!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It's not just the husband and wife that enter into a divorce. The kids, aunts, uncles, friends, grandparents all get pulled into the cycle of drama and conflict. I read this book for my grandchildren, aged 4 an 5 who are now in the heat of the presettlement stage of divorce. Many of the situations highlighted in this book are happening to them now. The fights between the parents at the "hand off" time. The author advises the parents to set a meeting to discuss problems for a time when the kids are not being transferred from one to the other. My 5 year old told me today that she wants me to pick her up because she hates being in the car when Mom and Dad are fighting and she hates when the phone rings because they "text" fight all the time.

My 4 year old told me that he doesn't have his favorite things at his Dad's house because they are all at his Mom's house. The author points out that when the households are divided, the parents should make an effort to allow some of the children's things to remain with the opposite parent. Good advice.

There are many helpful suggestions given in this book. Links are provided to the author's web site and other support groups. Unfortunately, none of the meetings take place close to our area.

The book does have a Christian tone, that will be a comfort to some and a turn off to others. On the whole there are tidbits of information and things to ponder that are very valuable to the parents, grandparents, friends and relatives of the divorcing family.
I plan on handing out copies to them all and hope that someone will listen, as they are not ready to listen to the same advice from me at this time of the process. God protect our children and grandchildren.

Tammy has provided a guide that is an essential resource to any family in this situation. She has clearly articulated where the priorities need to be and how to make it work as best as possible for our kids.

Children rely on both parents to bring stability and security into their world, regardless of if one parent tackles a majority of the child-rearing or if it is equally shared. This is not an assertion in the book, it is a fact. But it is a premise, however, to how children need to be raised in the event of broken families…

“Children of divorce have one heart, but they live in two homes.”

Divorce destroys families. There is no doubt about this. Yet it happens nonetheless. Personally, I have had several run-ins with divorce. As a child, my parents divorced and it tore my life apart. There are still parts of my personality today that were forged by such a tragedy. Even in my own life, one of my worst fears happened: my first marriage ended in divorce. It was even harder on my son, 1.0, who was just over one year old at the time. Divorce strikes and destroys. That is why G-d hates it so much. Despite all of that, however, the purpose of the book is not to condemn those who are victims of divorce (which, contrary to what some may be thinking, is every party involved).

The purpose of this book is to help those who have been put in the worst imaginable position. Children of divorce are typically an ongoing victim, being crushed and obliterated by the battle that the ex-partners carry on for years to come. It does not have to be this way. The divorce between my mother and father was not a pretty one – the battle carried on for quite some time and it impacted my sister and I the worst. The benefit from it, however, is that I know how my son feels over the matter. I know how bad the struggle is for him, and I know who I need to be. It does not make it easy one bit. Actually, it makes it harder.
