This book is a distillation of the author's 25 years experience of working with children whose parents have divorced. Heather Smith offers a positive approach which suggests that interventions based on knowledge can greatly improve the outcome of divorce for all concerned.
Enlivened throughout by comments made by children and parents themselves, the book is written to increase parents' understanding of their children's feelings and how they express such feelings. In this way it aims to reduce children's distress, giving them a greater chance of growing into happy, successful adults. There is also a unique chapter written specifically for children in which the author addresses their concerns directly.
