"Gary Neuman has a wonderful way of nourishing parents while reminding us that there are no simple ways to help children through complicated family times. Whether we're parents, grandparents, or friends, all of us can be grateful for Gary's encouragement to be natural as we talk to--and listen to--our children. We can also be thankful for his support as we reach out for extra help when we feel we need it." --Fred Rogers, creator of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood
"Of all the how-to advice about divorce on the market, the best is probably wrapped up in the book Helping Your Kids Cope with Divorce the Sandcastles Way. It's sympathetic, practical and loving; it covers all the problems faced by children of divorce; and it gives an excellent rundown of the reactions you can expect, age by age." -- The Washington Post

How to build a co-parenting relationship--even when you think you can't
When you or your child should see a therapist
Age-appropriate scripts for addressing sensitive issues
What to do when a parent moves away

This guide shows you that divorce need not be an inevitable blot on children's lives, but an opportunity for them to grow and strengthen the bonds with their parents.

I keep this book on my conference table and recommend it to every couple I meet with children.
It is an incredible resource for them, because it divides discussions of children and divorce into age categories and discusses what children need at different ages. It also has chapters on dealing with anger effectively, co-parenting, and how to introduce new relationships to children.
I highly recommend it for anyone considering divorce or who is in the midst of it!
