My Parents Are Getting a Divorce…I Wonder What Will Happen to Me. Karen Kaye, LMHC and Hara Wachholder, LMHC, Inkwater Press.
Approximately 40 to 50% of marriages end in divorce. While divorce takes its toll on the adults involved, just imagine how much harder it is for the children of these divorces. This is a book, written for ages 4 through 12, which a child can use to navigate his or her way through the ways his or her life will change during and after the divorce. Through discussion, this illustrated book gives a child a creative outlet to explore his or her feelings and find ways to convey these feelings to the adults around him or her. The child’s feelings will be allowed to be freely shared and discussed. In the end, this book will allow a child to be in control of his or her feelings in a difficult family situation that he or she had no part in causing.
This book was structured as a tool which makes the best use of face-to-face interaction….Carol
