Blackwell North Amer
In Helping Your Child Survive Divorce, child psychologist Mary Ann Shaw and her patients, children of all ages, share their unique insights through actual divorce stories. When parents can listen to their children and hear and see themselves from their children's perspective, many problems associated with divorce can be avoided.
Helping Your Child Survive Divorce follows the divorce process from the roots of an unhappy household, through separation, the legal proceedings, custody and visitation, the postdivorce standard of living, the possibility of moving away from friends and school, and the lifelong process of dealing with divorced parents. Many children's drawings are included, which graphically outline some of the problems the children are going through.
Divorce is traumatic for all families, but with good parenting techniques, children can emerge mentally healthy and capable of lasting relationships. This book will help parents learn how to think first about what's best for their children by seeing divorce through the children's eyes.
