Posted on Dec 10, 2010 by Hofheimer Family Law

Your Virginia divorce can be a scary, confusing experience for your child. As a parent, you will share in your child’s pain and want to do everything possible to make sure he or she is comforted and supported during this difficult time.

There are many resources at your local bookstore that can help your children grasp the essential facts of divorce and help them feel better about the changes happening in their lives.

Here is a small sampling of what’s available:

  • Helping Your Children Cope With Divorce The Sandcastles Way -by M. Gary Neuman, this book covers a lot of ground with step-by-step instructions and activities for handling the sensitive issues surrounding divorce and its aftermath.
  • Two Homes – by Claire Masurel, this book explains in a simple, comforting way that kids can enjoy sharing time at both parents’ homes after divorce.
