The book provides guidance for the kids on the changes and how to own and take control over the changes. Examples like how to organize yourself, questions to help you be prepared for change, self check questions for anxiety. I liked the 6 step solution breakdown which will help kids for their problem solving and I think this would be useful. I love the breathing techniques and "feeling soup" concept.
Unfortunately I don't think this book is a good fit (at this time) because the kids are being coached and alienated by their mom. While some of the statements would be good talking points or ideas for the kids to use when having a conversation with us - we don't feel the kids know the difference in what they are saying vs what they are being coached and thought this book might provide mixed messages. Example is the chapter on abuse (their mom regularly asks them if we hurt them and has called CPS on us before) and having the kids ask to not see the one parent (which may make sense in certain scenarios, but not for ours right now). I think that I'll hang on to this book and see if it would be helpful in a year for the transitions the kids are having at the time.
Bottom line: great book for 10+ year old kids if the parents divorce without active alienation. This book provides guidance to help empower the kids during this emotional and tense time.
