Divorced parents report that after the divorce, their young children started bed watering again and that they could not or did not want to do simple tasks that they were able to before.

Let's face it something like this is hard enough on you and the kids, there is no rule book, every family is different and comes with its own set of challenges. This book was extremely helpful in learning what NOT to do and what TO do in order to ensure the kids come out of the mess as emotionally, mentally stable as possible. Therapist recommended book, just wish I'd purchased it sooner. It takes a common sense approach to each age group and realizes that parents are human and boys and girl react differently. Most of all instead of knee jerk reactions as a parent, you recognize 'signs' and learn new ways to handle them or head off an emotional issue. MOST OF ALL do NOT be afraid to have you/kids in therapy. They need a safe place to share how they feel, that and buying this book were the two best things I could ever have done for my children. Sadly, the other parent should be on the same page, and often they aren't for whatever selfish reasons they have. This book, getting into a therapist, best gift you can give yourself and your children.

I wish I had read this book before speaking with my kids about our divorce. Should be required reading for any couple considering breaking up.

my therapist suggested this to my boyfriend and me. He has two kids and I have none. This gave me a good perspective even though I knew a lot of this information already. I'd recommend to single fathers out there.

There was some helpful information in here, although nothing that wasn't repeated on other books I've read on the subject. I thought some of the recommendations were insensitive or just not conducive to raising emotionally intelligent, aware children, or parenting in the style that I do, which is (attempting) with deep empathy and attachment/bonding theory.

Read Wallerstein's initial book "The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce" and loved it. It has influenced and continues to inform my work with families in counseling.

This book takes the research presented in that book and provides practical guidelines for how parents should help their children and themselves in the years following divorce. Highly recommended for parents and family counselors.

Good book, covers a whole host of issues. Due to the complexity of divorce it is not a highly in depth book. It does a nice job at highlighting the major issues.
Tejora
More good information.
Good Book
