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.
