In the 1990s, 40 percent of all children growing up in America will experience the often devastating impact of a parental divorce. Now, here are reassuring practical strategies for dealing with your children's varied emotional responses to the event. Using extensive examples drawn from his own clinical experience and research, Dr. Neil Kalter describes the three universal stages of divorce, and how each stage affects children in various age groups--from infancy through adolescence. Inside, Dr. Kalter gives expert advice on how to:
¸ Recognize the signs of emotional distress before it gets out of hand
¸ Minimize your children's stress during a wide variety of potentially "explosive" situations--from joint custody to dating
¸ Pinpoint and mitigate the private fears that cause your children's "acting out" at home, in school, or with friends
¸ Communicate effectively with your child using a variety of indirect and non-threatening techniques
