Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Vicki Lansky's Divorce Book for Parents is a pragmatic yet warm and understanding guide for parents and children on just about every aspect of divorce. From tips on talking to the kids about it, to information on negotiating the realities of custody and child support, Lansky demystifies the divorce process, including the emotional aspects. A parenting writer of many books (Feed Me, I'm Yours), Lansky is also a divorced, single mother. Her combination of information, humor, and compassion make the Divorce Book for Parents a valuable resource.

From Library Journal

Basing her approach on the belief that children are affected less by divorce itself than by the way a family is restructured and the way feelings are handled afterward, Lansky--herself a divorced mother and the author of Feed Me! I'm Yours (Meadowbrook, 1986. rev. ed.) and other books--presents a highly practical and optimistic guide for divorced and divorcing parents. Among the many problem areas she covers, all from the perspective of doing what is best for the child, are breaking the news, the danger of continuing conflict, deciding when professional help is needed, organizing--and surviving--departure, dealing with the ex-spouse, and long-term adjustment. "You might think I'm painting a rather rosy picture in this book and that the real world doesn't work like this," she admits. "But it can. " Highly recommended for all public library collections.

I purchased this book for my friend to help him understand what his kids were going through and help him learn to deal with a bitter ex-wife. I thought the book would offer solutions to co-parenting issues or offer advise on how to work with a less-than-amicable former spouse. Instead, this book focussed on women who were dealing with deliquent husbands - how to make them pay, how to keep them involved, etc. It would have been more helpful to additionally offer advise on how to make her share the kids, how to make her co-parent with him, how help her move beyond the fight of the parents to the health of the children. I know the roles can be reversed in either case, but the author obviously felt that women were more likely to nurture the children. This, unfortunately, is not always the case.

This book was (and is) of tremendous help to me and my ex-husband in explaining our pending divorce and separation to our children. I cannot stress enough how useful this one little book was. It was the first and only book that I found that in clear and concise terms addressed what the children at various ages "hear" when you say, "Mommy and Daddy are getting a divorce." I cannot recommend this book highly enough. If you are in a (admittedly sad) situation where you are about to separate and need to know how to discuss it effectively with your children, this is the book for you!

This book can do wonders. It covers so much ground in a clear, concise manner. Every paragraph or two provided either insight, encouragement or advice. I bought other books on the subject of divorce and children, but nothing compares to this book. You can look for other books, but this is all you will need. The only exception, is the campanion book written by Lansky, "It's Not Your Fault, Koko Bear" Another must for those parents with young children. Both books will serve parents well. If your Ex is difficult to deal with, get this book for them. It can help defuse situations and refocus them to do the right things for the child(ren) they love.

If you have two parents that are rational human beings and your divorce is surrounded by rainbows and birds singing this book will keep things on course. But if you are escaping and/or surviving a domestic violence situation, you'll find this woman is clueless.

This was a very practical and easy reading book for a parent looking at helping themselves and their child with issues that arise in their lives on divorce. The organization was clear and covered the basic areas that one may think about in the initial steps of a separation and then divorce. It gave age appropriate examples to think about and use with the child and healthful reminders for the parent surrounding the emotional stress on the family members.

Vicki Lansky's book is good for divorcing parents who are invariably stressed out because it is not overwhelming. It's small and readable and divided into chapter headings that make it easy to just read what is relevant to you. It's so hard navigating caring for children after splitting up, even when it isn't a contentious situation. This helps to put the needs of children front and center when a parent's own needs may be very pressing and distracting to them.

This book is mostly for parents who are considering divorce, going through the process, or just got divorced. The author gives advice about divorce, custody, how to tell the children and more. It is a good resource for everybody given the fact that a high percent of American parents are sons and daughters of divorce. Current statistics suggest that for 2012 suggest that about 40-50% of marriages end on divorce in the US.
