Safeguarding the Well-Being of Children During & After A Parental Breakup
From the desk of Dr. Chet
Psychologist & Parent Divorce Educator
Dear Parents and Other Caregivers,
Serving as a psychologist and parent divorce educator, I have learned that what separating parents most need are ideas and strategies that offer genuine hope that their children can be okay.
Over the past 25 years, I have collected key concepts from research and crafted them into easy-to-understand messages for parents to help their children. I refined those messages as I engaged over 25,000 parents who attended my Kids First Parent Divorce Education Classes. Those ideas and strategies were further improved as I applied them in my private practice as a psychologist working with over 2000 parents and children.
This book offers hope through parental empowerment.
Wishing you and your children the best,
Most separating parents worry about how their children will cope with their breakups. Will the children be okay? What can be done to help them? What is known about that? The short answer is that there is a lot known about how children cope with and are affected by parental breakups. This book has been written to help parents chart a course to a hopeful future where children can be loved and cared for by both parents. Reviewing highlights of 50 years of research, Part I identifies what helps in hinders children as they cope with parental pickups. Built on that evidence, Part II offers a Family Transition Plan consisting of 15 positive steps parents can take to ensure the well-being of their children. It is a workbook filled with family-planning checklists and worksheets. 8.5 x 11, 92 pages.
