Review

Mommy and Daddy are Getting a Divorce is an incredibly helpful tool to help me talk to my young children about my husband's and my impending divorce. I'm sure I could have made it through the discussion without the book - however, this book was truly helpful bringing up the harder topics and being able to discuss them in a safe environment.

The tips section in the back was a really great conversation starter...

Thank you. --Sparkle Phillips, Author and Mother of 3

I want to say thank you to Dr. Turner, for this user-friendly book.
Explaining divorce to the children is a daunting task. I found this "read-along-with-the-children" approach, went a long way in helping me to help them understand the changes and impact our divorce would have on their lives. Get this book, because it will help you with a difficult situation.

This is very sensible, sensitive, and pragmatic book. Dr Turner has put together a great resource for families going through a divorce. This is a hard enough time. Having a book like this one answers a lot of questions asked and unasked. Very valuable resource. I definitely recommend it.

Dr. Turner has written a great guide for helping those of us struggling with divorce find a way to speak to and help our children. If you are a parent and going through a divorce or know parents who are, this is a great resource. I would also suggest purchasing the workbook.

A must read for any parent or grandparent with children going through divorce. Very insightful and informative and helps both parents and children understand 'what's going on.' Author makes it very easy to share this book between parents and children. Wish all 'helpful' books were as easy to understand and navigate through.

Kristine,

Your book has been so useful for my son and I. I am going through a divorce and need a lot of resources to help my son through this difficult process. We read it every night ... it brings great comfort to both of us as we try and manuever through our new life. I have recommended "Mommy and Daddy are Getting Divorced" to two other friends who are going through a divorce. Thank you for your insight!!! I hope there will be more to come!!!
