Resources for Children of Divorce

Resources for Children of Divorce

Divorce is emotionally draining, stressful, and is difficult in a multitude of ways for the spouses who are ending their marriage. Divorce can be even more draining, stressful, and more difficult for children of divorce.

Even the most well-meaning and amicable parents will encounter difficulties in the context of explaining divorce to children and finding ways to help them cope amidst their own personal stress.

There are web-sites, books, and other resources ranging from sources like Sesame Street to support groups. There are books published that are geared toward helping children process their parents divorces. They range from books for very young children such as “Dinosaurs Divorce (A Guide for Changing Families)” to books for older children like “It’s Not the End of the World” by Judy Blume.

Providing resources for children of divorce can allow parents to address their personal emotional difficulties surrounding divorce and also to ensure that their children’s difficulties are not ignored or unnoticed.
