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

  1. Parental divorce is always stressful for children. My parents divorced when I was 12 years old. These were already the dashing 1990s. The first year I was generally psychologically hard, because since the times of the USSR, the divorce of parents has always been condemned and considered something shameful. This was condemned by society. Of course, subsequently this affected the material position. But over time, we managed to survive all this and everything became normal.
    In modern Russia, the number of divorces is huge. According to statistics, if a divorce occurred after 15 years, then many are no longer willing to remarry. Gradually, it became commonplace. Unfortunately. The institution of the family is destroyed by many factors: economic turmoil, domestic violence, alcoholism, selfishness, betrayal, etc. In principle, the causes of divorce are the same throughout the world. It is a pity that children suffer from this, because they do not grow up psychologically full in an incomplete family.
