Divorce is devastating for children - we all know that. Unfortunately, statistics show that children of divorced parents are more likely to experience divorce in their own marriages.
We need to break that cycle!
As a divorced mom of three kids, I want to do everything I can to ensure that they will not follow in my footsteps, and make the same relationship mistakes that I made.
I believe with all my heart that my kids are able to have one happy, healthy, life-long marriage. In Don't Do What I Did!, we teach teens how to recognize red flags in a relationship, talk about common values, and then how to make sure a marriage stays happy and healthy forever!
While our book speaks directly to teens and young adults, it's also a great read for parents who would like a little help and guidance when discussing dating, relationships and marriage with their kids.
Diane O'Neil is the creator of You Won't Learn This In School! (www.YouWontLearnThisInSchool.com) It all started with her book entitled "Don't Do What I Did - Teaching Teens with Divorced Parents How to Have a Successful Marriage." She took her own life experience with divorce to develop a book and accompanying workshop that teaches teens important guidelines when it comes to dating, relationships, and ultimately, marriage. Her goal is to break the cycle of divorce!
You Won't Learn This In School! offers valuable life lessons for teens and young adults. These are lessons that students don't normally learn in school. Topics include job searching, interviewing, resume writing, budgeting, paying bills, buying your first car, cooking - the possibilities are endless!
Diane is passionate about bringing these lessons to teens - and, to help parents find the guidance and resources they need.
She states, "I wish I had this information when I was starting out on my own!"
Diane lives in beautiful Allen, Texas - she is the proud mom of two sons, one daughter, and one Boxer.
