If you're divorced or separated and you are trying to co-parent, do yourself a favor and immediately get this book! Parenting Apart is a valuable resource for any divorced or separated couple who is raising children. Considering the high percentage of divorced couples, this book fills an important need for parents and especially, children. The chapter, "How to Tell Your Children You Are Getting a Divorce" alone is worth the price of the book. Invaluable are the chapters that address the different emerging needs of children at different developmental levels (from newborns through to adolescence). Thank you to the author for writing this much-needed book. Rich Nicastro, Ph.D.
