I found the book to be well written and easy to read, and it was also somehow comforting and gentle while presenting hard truths. I believe it will help you whether you had a breakup or a divorce, and whether you have children or not. Good luck to you!
Having looked at other books on the market, I respectfully disagree with Jazzgirl's review and negative comparison with Susan Elliot's book. The Breaupk Bible is down to earth, totally common sensical, encouraging and optimistic. It's given me hope for my future and understanding of where I have been and where I am going.
Thank You, Rachel Sussman!
The effects of divorce upon their children. Women desperately need to know what sort of problems their children will have as a result of the divorce. What can be done to help children? What has been shown to harm children? There is almost a century of scientific research into the subject, and we talking massive, simply massive numbers of research studies.
When compared to children who grow up with their biological parents, children of divorce:
Are 70% more likely to drop out of high school
Are 75% more likely to live in poverty
Are hugely more at risk for developing alcohol and drug dependency
Are 85% more likely to exhibit behavioral disorders
Are more likely to have reading problems
Are 75% more likely to end up in chemical dependency hospitals
Are far less likely to take advanced classes.
Are twice as likely to be arrested
Are 80% of the prison population
Rarely qualify for gifted classes.
Are more likely to be promiscuous
Are 40 times more likely to be abused
Are 3 out of 4 of teenage suicides
No, it isn't just poverty. Not only do almost all the research studies carefully sift the data for the effects of poverty, even the briefest glance at studies of the very wealthy who divorce, and the impact it has on their children, removes that possibility. The children of very wealthy parents may not end up poor; but all too often they end up with substance abuse problems, emotional problems, and failure.
