Children Are Special

There is something great about being a child.

Children have so many reasons to be happy.

There are things to do, places to go, people to be with.

Children are special. As you grow up, there will be many more things to enjoy. It’s terrific to be a child.

Sometimes children become disappointed. That’s to be expected. Every child feels sad or hurt once in a while. Maybe a pet has died or a bike has been stolen, or maybe the family has to move away.

Many children become sad because their parents get divorced. That happens very often—too often. Every year millions of parents get divorced. They decide they don’t love each other and don’t want to live together anymore.

You probably know several children whose parents are divorced. Those children may have found it difficult, but many have shown that it is possible to be happy again.

Children are like rubber balls. They have lots of bounce. When they get down, children manage to bounce up again.

There are too many fascinating things to do.

Children don’t like to sit around and worry.

What would you like to do? What is your favorite game? Do you have a hobby or do you collect things? What is your favorite television show? What friend would you like to have over to your house?

Didn’t God make an interesting world? And He made children special so they can enjoy so much of it. There are many good times ahead for children like you.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book to read to your kids. It's made up of short (1-2 page) chapters on topics that kids are concerned about when facing their parent's divorce. The great thing about it is the questions it asks. It would take 10 minutes to read a chapter and then we'd spend the following hour talking about not just the topic of the chapter, but the 1000 other questions the kids had that reading the chapter helped bring out. Think of it as a discussion primer.

Format: Paperback
Being a teacher and a child of divorce I found this book to be perfect for parents to read WITH their child when going through a divorce. It is an easy read for the child and brings up topics that goes through a child's mind during divorce. It has a religious focus, but it's hard to get through difficult times without your faith. I recommend this book to parents at school when I learn they are going through a divorce.

This book has been a Godsend for my son and for me. It puts questions about divorce in simple terms and helps to generate discussion about the various topics and feelings that are being experienced.

Highly recommend this book if you are going through a divorce with adolescent children.

I was very disappointed to learn that the book had such a religious focus. I didn't feel that I got that information from what I read. Your buyers should be aware of this. I bought the book for my niece and she was turned off by this. I regret buying the book for her.
