Educational Resources for Divorcing Parents
Many good resources help educate parents on how to maintain relationships with their children during and after divorce. For example, I highly recommend Dr. Richard Warshak’s book Divorce Poison: How to Protect Your Family from Bad-mouthing and Brainwashing. Dr. Warshak gives great advice to those parents who find that their ex-spouse is trying to alienate their children from them.
Another outstanding educational resource recently entered the market. HBO released a new documentary, Don’t Divorce Me!: Kids’ Rules for Parents on Divorce. The viewer is shown the effects of divorce on children from the perspective of children. Over two dozen children from the ages of five to ten are interviewed in the documentary. The documentary seeks to impress upon the viewer that they not forget to consider the child’s perspective.
