What About The Children by Julie Lynn Evans, 30 April 2009
This is a must read for anybody with children who is either going through a divorce or is trying to help someone who is going through the break up of a marriage. I have watched many of my friends, quite unknowingly, cause terrible damage to their children. Divided loyalties, confusion, over protective and often pathetically and unreasonably guilty children are often used as pawns in the elaborate dissemination of the blame game that broken hearted or defiant parents unwittingly put their children through.
Julie Lynn Evans gives kind and thoughtful advice. She has clearly been there, done that and has found a way to forgive her ex husband enough to give him a loving tribute in her acknowledgements. Her skills as a psychotherapist combine with a very real warmth and empathy. Her advice is practical and non judgemental. Buy it and read it and you may very well make a troubled child's life much easier. Not to mention your own.
