Do you know a child affected by the break-up of their parents' marriage? It could be your own child or grandchild, your niece, nephew, or even one of your pupils. Divorce is common - but for each child involved, it is a bewildering and hurtful experience, similar to bereavement, yet without the same level of support. This practical guide is written by a mother who saw how divorce impacted her own four children. It shows how family break-up affects children differently at various ages, and carries on doing so in new ways at later stages of life - and as parents move on into new relationships, maybe with new siblings. The Essential Guide to Children and Separation includes interviews with those who have come through divorce, and a lot of input from children currently affected by parental separation. This helpful and caring book shows that divorce may mean the end of a marriage, but does not need to be the end of the world for the children involved.
Jennifer Croly works as a teacher, and has wide experience of the damage divorce can do to children, the problems they face in coming to terms with it, and the ignorance of those around them in how long the process of adjustment can take. She wrote Missing being Mrs for Monarch following the breakup of her first marriage, having seen the impact it had on her and her four children. Now remarried, she lives in Devon.
