Format: Paperback
My friend recently purchased Dr. Banschick's book on divorce and keeping your kids first. A lot of people forget to care for their children properly during divorce, and Dr. Banschick aims to rectify that. The book covers everything from communication with your child to your child's bill of rights. Children are the unintentional victims of adults' actions. With this book, my friend really gained a lot of insight into how her divorce was affecting her children, as well as herself. If you know someone who is in the middle of a divorce, or who is struggling from a recent divorce, recommend this book to them- I'm sure it will do a lot of good for them and their relationship with their kids.
The book is aimed for divorced adults with children, and there is a lot of information in there. It is coherent and easy to understand. He avoids medical jargon so that his points come across crystal clear.

The Intelligent Divorce: Because Your Kids Come First, book one of a series by Dr. Mark Banschick, has takes more than a decade of professional knowledge, training and energy and synthesized it down to 200 pages. In developing the Intelligent Divorce Model, Dr. Banschick participated in and reviewed hundreds of case studies and he provides us with many real life examples from the perspective of a trained clinician. This awesome resource book is full of valuable information and sound advice presented in every day language (no psycho-babble). The book and the whole concept of the need for an Intelligent Divorce is sure to resonate with anyone who is interested in keeping children out of the middle of unhealthy separation and divorce situations.

The Intelligent Divorce has the perfect blend of useful information and sound advice, while often teaching by example and through practical comparisons. Most would agree that sometimes it is necessary to become familiar with, or at least recognize, ineffective ways of doing things in order to improve. The same is often true when trying to become a more effective co-parent and communicator. This book paves the way and demonstrates exactly how to do that while truly keeping the child's best interests first and foremost, always. Dr. Banschick recognizes that this stuff isn't easy, but he shows you how to be "on top of your game" even under the most difficult of circumstances. The subtitle says it all, "Because Your Kids Come First."

If this book is the first of Dr. Banschick's new series, I strongly suggest that after you read this one that you pre-order the next book ASAP !

Format: Paperback
Having "been there and done that" divorce, I can say that there are many things that my ex-husband and I could have done better. Not so much in the divorce, but how and what our kids were told. "The Intelligent Divorce - Because Your Kids Come First" by Dr. Mark R. Banschick and David Tabatsky is a MUST READ! This book is intelligently written and simply put. In a sentence, we must all "preserve out children's innocence".

The book is a quick read yet full of information, helpful hints and work pages. There is nothing unrealistic about the contents and suggestions made by the authors. Every parent going through divorce needs to "preserve the innocence of their children" and this book will help and show you how you can work towards that.

If only this book was around 5 years ago!

Fabulous book! Getting divorced is So anxiety producing. This book was an easy to read, clear-cut guide to remind me all the traps I could fall into which could hurt my kids. I bought the book for my ex-spouse (we are amicable), and it gave us a common ground for discussion - invaluable. Banschek has the ability to boil down incredibly complex issues to easy to understand tenets. Lowered the stress of our divorce by incredible leaps and bounds. Buy this book! Fraction of cost of your lawyer (sadly!!).
