Seems to be for tweens or teens versus younger kids. Content is good.

HASH(0xb52d3c18) out of 5 stars Understanding My Parent's Divorce April 2 2006
By Mark Howe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I was 7, my parents got divorced. I am now 18, and looking back I realize how confused I was about the breakup. Recently, my dad gave me an advanced copy of Mom's House, Dad's House for Kids, and asked for my opinion on the book. With the intention of only skimming a few pages, I found myself unable to put it down, and read the book in its entirety. I was amazed at the clear, simple, and compassionate way Dr. Ricci answered questions about divorce that baffled me in the past. The thing that impressed me most about Mom's House, Dad's House for Kids was the consistent positive message it conveyed. Without preaching, the book encourages children to make and fulfill positive goals, respect themselves and others, and above all come to acceptance about their parent's divorce. I know this book would have helped me in the past, and I would highly recommend it to any child going through divorce.

HASH(0xa2fbc684) out of 5 stars Great book for kids May 24 2006
By Emily M. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mom's House, Dad's House for Kids is terrific! The author knows how to speak to kids in a way that helps them understand and cope with the changes that come with separation, divorce, and remarriage. The focus is positive and proactive: things kids can do to feel better, tips on how to talk to parents about problems, strategies for addressing and resolving problems, a framework for exploring consequences when making choices, answers to kids' unasked questions, and more. There's even a section giving answers to the questions that kids hesitate to ask. The book doesn't end with the divorce, but continues with what to expect and how to cope when the family changes once again into a stepfamily. The tone, the format, and the content are super child-friendly. A must-read for kids whose parents are separating, divorcing, dating, or remarrying.

HASH(0xa2eb5b70) out of 5 stars So kids not only survive, but thrive May 6 2006
By Ellen E. Chaffee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book can be a young person's full-time guide not just to the logistics, emotions, and decisions that arise during parents' divorce, but also to growing up strong under any conditions. As a mother whose daughter was 9 at the time of divorce (or until she turned 18 or so - she's an adult now), I would have bought two copies - one for me and one for her - so that each of us could have it handy 24/7 and write our own marginal notes. Three copies. One for dad, too. Arguments may be commonplace during and after divorce, but no one could argue with the solid foundation and practical value of Dr. Ricci's ideas or her profound love of children and families. It should be in the waiting room of every therapist, as well.

HASH(0xa328360c) out of 5 stars Great about addressing the most difficult questions to ask before kids even need to ask June 13 2011
By C. Aaronsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We loved this book! However, I will say that my bonus kids are 8 and 9. When we ordered this book we were just going to slide it on their shelf for them to peruse at their leisure. After going through it together, we decided that the content towards the back (where the questions become exceedingly more difficult and the situations address more violent issues such as child abuse, etc.) was not age appropriate for our bonus kids. Because of this, the kids have never really looked through it on their own, and we have been using it more as a guide book for when a situation comes up that we need help handling. The best thing about this book is that their mom was interested in it as well, so it helped everyone cooperate and get on the same page. For this reason alone it has been a life saver!
