"Dr. Teyber writes in the mature voice of a seasoned clinician, providing parents with not only his own observations, but a substantial amount of conclusive research regarding the effects of divorce on children, accompanied by realistic, age–appropriate advice for the whole family." (Child Magazine)
"Will be extremely helpful to any parent going through the process of divorce. It is conceptually sound, easy to read, and has important information for parents, professionals, and anyone who is working with children whose parents are going through divorce." (Hugh McIssac, LCSW, director, Family Court Services, The Superior Court, Los Angeles County)
"An outstanding book. It reinforces the value of putting children first and acknowledges children′s need for both parents during and after the divorce. Teyber clearly describes the stress and pain children experience and explains how best to shield them from the parent′s own conflicts. . . . Essential reading. . . ." (David L. Levy, Esq., president, Children′s Rights Council)
"Dr. Teyber covers the importance of parenting skills [in offering] stability and continuity in critical stages of child development following a divorce." (Louis Welch, director, Child Custody Reform Project)

From the Inside Flap
Helping Children Cope with Divorce is an award–winning book that helps parents handle children′s problems at each stage of the divorce process. This book includes such vital information as how to minimize stress during initial breakups and ultimate separation and how to explain the divorce so children don′t blame themselves or think their parents will reunite if they just change thief behavior and are ?really good.? The author also offers suggestions on how to protect children from parental hostilities and to navigate conflicts of loyalty and alliance. This is a practical guidebook for anyone with children who is considering or is in the process of a divorce. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

The book provides lots of information on the issues affecting different age-groups and genders, without resorting to stereotype. Unlike a lot of books, it is equally applicable to fathers and mothers and although written by an American, works well for UK parents. Although it refers to marriage and divorce throughout, it is about parenting after any break-up.
As a woman with two mother-fixated pre-schoolers, I have found the book really useful in clarifying why their father's role is so important and how I can get the best out of his (not altogether responsible or pro-active) parenting style.
Expensive, worth every penny, thoroughly recommended.
We had numerous questions and concerns about our kids and were both in a state of mental confusion and disarray, partly fuelled by preconceptions as to the "necessarily" disastrous effect of divorce on children.
This amazing book set about clearing the air and the record, and gave us tremendous confidence that by doing things in the right way, our kids could come through the divorce unscathed and perhaps even happier than they were before.
We made the (considerable) effort to follow the guidelines closely and the results were amazing. Our kids showed text book responses when told the news, and by planning things properly we were able to respond effectively, and our kids have accepted the new situation practically with equanimity.
I cannot recommend the book highly enough - it should be mandatory reading for all divorcing couples. In fact, I was sorry that I had not read it at the start of my marriage, as the book also contains a lot of insight that would have been useful for the marriage itself.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The descriptions that are given about what feelings children endure are gripping. I came to truly understand what our three have had to bury in their beings. Now, before its too late, however, I have unique insight that will enable me to help them --hopefully with their father.
I cannot write too much about the value of knowing what divorce does to children, how to help them heal, how to take charge of the situation that seems hopeless, and what to NOT do.
