A life saver...,
This review is from: What About the Children? (Paperback)
I found this book gave a real no-nonsense approach to dealing with a difficult and hard to look at aspect of divorce. The one thing I did not want to happen when I got divorced was for my children to be hurt in any way. This book helped me think about all the tricky situations that might arise, eg: breaking the news to the kids, moving out, arranging visits, new partners. Most of all, though, the book helped me realise that I did have an important role in the childrens' lives and didn't have to simply hand them over and walk away. Completely apart from divorce, I also found the chapters on teenagers really helpful - it's good to have some tips on how to talk to them! How about: What About the Fathers next!?
