I recommend this book to ANYONE touched by divorce. I’ve been divorced for two years now. My deepest pain and despair stems from my fear that divorce will hurt my children in an irreparable way. I have felt such sadness knowing that as a result of my choice they will now have to identify with being from a divorced family…something I could never have imagined they would have had to relate to. After reading Dilyse’s book, I have clarity and hope. This was a quick read that got right to the heart of how I can protect my children and take care of both them and myself. Dilyse acknowledges that divorce will change the the way my boys will experience their childhood but, the way I take care of myself and them will make the difference between a hopeful, encouraging, loving, healing, growing future for them or one filled with buried feelings and emotional burdens. They can take either one into their future and we as parents get the honor of supporting our children in finding positive solutions for processing painful circumstances. Dilyse describes just how to do that in this easy to read, hopeful book. It is exactly what I hoped to find and needed to read. It is a great reminder of how important it is for me to take care of myself, so I can be the present parent I need to be for them. Divorce is painful. Dilyse gives us concrete information and examples of how to embrace what has (or is happening) happened as well as how to help ourselves and our children have a bright and wonderful future. For anyone who has or is experiencing divorce … THIS BOOK IS A MUST HAVE!
Terrific book by an experienced and talented therapist. There is nothing easy about divorce but this book provides a valuable helping hand to make the process easier, while protecting those who matter most – the children caught in the wake.
