Reviews

-Jean McBride has created an excellent resource for parents coping with the challenges of divorce and parenting. Reflecting her oft-used suggestion in the book to 'gently and compassionately' approach various situations, McBride models this method beautifully, using a gentle approach with compassionate understanding for parents in an extremely difficult situation. McBride has created a step-by-step manual with concrete, scripted examples of how to approach children and what to say for a comprehensive array of issues. She has spot-on observations, while integrating information about normal child development with the needs and processes of divorce. Know that I will highly recommend this book to all of my clients confronting divorce.-- Rebecca Jedel, PhD, Licensed Clinical Psychologist-Parents searching for a resource to help them effectively communicate with children about divorce will find Talking to Children About Divorce an excellent choice. Jean McBride's years of experience as a therapist and divorce educator underlies her caring and knowledgeable approach to offering insights, clear recommendations, and meaningful examples of good communication. She takes a positive approach to the key issues and common questions that both parents and children have about this important change, encouraging parents to focus on what's best for children. This book is long overdue.- - Kay Pasley, EdD, Professor Emerita, Family and Child Sciences, Florida State University-This is a great guide for parents going through a divorce or for those who have already been divorced and are struggling to communicate with children having trouble with the transition. The real-life examples and simple tips make it easy to put the book into action. Research is showing that children from divorced homes can grow up to be just as happy, healthy, and successful as children who grow up in two-parent homes as long as they receive some additional support, and this book offers ways to give them that.-- Karen Becker, Life Coach and Author ofCo-Parenting When Your Ex Won't "Jean McBride has created an excellent resource for parents coping with the challenges of divorce and parenting.
