It’s a pleasure today to welcome author Renee Smith Ettline back to Thoughts in Progress to share some information about a subject that many families across the nation (and world) face daily and that’s how divorce affects the children in the household.
Renee’s book is Children Coping with Your Divorce? What Parents Can Do to Help.
This is such an important book for parents who are divorced or getting divorced to read. In my state, the courts require divorcing couples to take a parenting class but it is only 3 hours and can't cover everything. This book gives parents tools for ways to help their kids cope. I have been divorced, and even the most well-adjusted kid has trouble. If you have a kid like mine who is good at hiding their true feelings, you will need this even more. See More Reader Reviews.
Renee said, “You may not realize how your everyday actions can either deepen the wounds your children experience from your divorce, or support their healing. It is my prayer that this short-read eBook gives you practical help for making a positive difference in the lives of your children.”
In this concise and powerful eBook, counselor and award-winning Christian author Renee Smith Ettline, M.Ed., outlines 12 opportunity areas where parents can help their children cope with the realities of divorce. Within each opportunity area are specific actions parents can take. By and large these are simple actions that can make a big difference in your children’s ability to thrive despite divorce.
What you do matters. Help your children find safety and support that fosters a well-adjusted life despite the divorce of their parents.
