Product Description

From the Back Cover

How best to help your child through your divorce

Making Divorce Easier on Your Child is filled with practical, sensitive, and highly effective ways to help children cope and adjust both during and after this major change in their lives. Most important, this information will enable you, as a parent, to minimize the negative effects of divorce on your children.

Written by the highly respected psychologists and bestselling authors of Parenting the Strong-Willed Child, this invaluable book draws on the latest research findings and opinions of leading experts in the field, as well as the authors' own clinical experiences and research, to guide you from the first step of planning for divorce to telling your children of your decision to handling visitation and financial issues to moving toward the future--and looking after your own well-being in the process. Here you will find a range of easy-to-follow techniques and priceless wisdom including:

  • Fifty proven strategies for helping your children become well-adjusted despite your divorce
  • The most up-to-date scientific findings made available and accessible to parents
  • Advice on how to accept your children's love for their other parent, as well as dealing with a noncustodial parent who becomes uninvolved
  • How to handle new family combinations
  • How to know when to seek professional help for your children

The majority of issues faced by divorcing or divorced parents are difficult but not hopeless. Comprehensive, upbeat, to the point, and easy to digest during a stressful time, Making Divorce Easier on Your Child can make the adjustment less painful for all involved.

helpful for parents Feb. 28 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a professional counselor, I was interested in specific ideas on helping parents & children of divorce. This book had some very concrete ideas. It is aimed at parents, written in 'plain-speak'. There's nothing new or eath-shaking here, but it is a pretty all-inclusive little book for parents interested in helping their children deal with the issue of divorce.

Excellent and practical book. April 20 2009
By M. C. Loftin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was written to disseminate information derived from three decades of behavioral research into the effects of divorce on children. It has a format of short chapters that make it easy to read and apply as needed. The book is inexpensive, useful, and accurate. I am a clinical psychologist, and in my practice, I recommend this book to all my patients who are parents struggling with divorce.

Common Sense April 20 2013
By Jancee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book isn't bad, but it is definitely written for people who are in particularly tense divorce situations. If you and your ex are cooperative, and you are looking for specific information about specific situations, this is not the book for you. It is very general and quite repetitive. Much of the advice seems to be plain common sense to me, and I think I could sum up the book by just saying to act maturely, respectfully and considerately of your spouse and child(ren).

If you are just needing a push in the right direction to behave well during your divorce, this could be encouraging. However, there really isn't any novel or helpful information about helping your child(ren) through the process...

I wouldn't buy this again.

Good Overview July 12 2005
By K. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a good overview, but I needed more situational type information. How to work through the tough disagreements with a spouse who is unwilling to meet on common ground. How to deal with younger children and how it impacts them. I did take away some good advice, but most of the book is common sense.
