Found this book REALLY helpful in understanding what my daughter is going through, how she may be feeling and how this can manifest itself... Also in how to deal with all the subjects that come with divorce that you have to try and explain to your children when they ask you all those difficult questions.

Helping Your Kids Cope With Divorce the Sandcastles Way by M. Gary Neuman

Hm i don't believe to much in such books. Every kid and every divorce is story for itself so i don't see how can someone guess what would be universal approach to all different problems. Still, i believe that you can find something useful.

Well my sons are teenagers and they'd rather do ANYTHING than talk about their Dad leaving and related matters.

But most self-help books can offer useful tips and advice, its a question of picking what is relevant to your situation.

I guess it's each to their own.
It doesn't take a universal approach which is why I found it helpful.
As with all books similar to this, some parts are relevant and some aren't! Just a suggestion that's all..

Okay, I'm in the middle on this topic. When we were wanting to tell our children who were 7 and 9yo a year ago, I didn't find a book that I liked as it did not relate to our specific situation. My solution was to write my own children's book about parental separation in which I read to them with no title and no pictures. Each child then took their own blank version and colored their own pictures to each page. My daughter called the book \"Something's Changing\". It was a beautiful, tearful and powerful experience that I will cherish the rest of my life.

What a lovely idea - you're lucky you're gifted enough to do that!!! Don't think I'd know where to start!
