Help Your Children Cope with Your Divorce
Paula Hall

Children of all ages can be devastated by the news that their parents' relationship has broken down. Even those who have been living in a 'high conflict' situation are often shocked by the final decision to separate. For most children, separation means major changes to family life and often losing a parent. The long term impacts of divorce are now widely recognised with increased chances of problems at school, criminal behaviour, problems in their own relationships and mental illness. This guide will provide you with clear advice and guidance on how to minimise the impact of your relationship breakdown on your children. Including: an explanation of the age-specific issues that children face when they find out their family is breaking up; professional comment; stories and quotes from children; checklists and case studies. Acknowledging the personal difficulties faced by the adult who has made the decision to leave, as well as the adult who feels they are being abandoned, this sensitive and accessible guide is a must for all parents going through divorce or separation, who are concerned for their children.

It's Called a Breakup, Not a Breakdown
Lisa Steadman

Every woman has experienced her Big Breakup, the one that shakes her core and makers her feel she doesn't want to fall in love ever again. This book gently caters for those who have suffered from The Big One. While there are many casual breakup guides on the market, as well as those that offer breakup revenge tactics, none illustrate just how fabulous moving on can be. Lisa Steadman tells readers that a breakup is not about being "broken". Rather, she reminds women that a breakup is about celebrating who they are and figuring out how to pick themselves up after the fall and move on. It's about a breakup, not a breakdown!
