Overview

As the first “divorce generation” is now reaching parenthood, society is beginning to feel the social and psychological effects of divorce. Author Thomas Berner studies this subject in a clear and interesting manner. He tackles difficult questions such as: How do children of divorce face daily life? How do they mature and how do they perceive themselves growing up? How have they modified their lives as a result of growing up in a one-parent home? What legacy does divorce leave? The answers to these and other questions are vital to the understanding of the profound, yet not necessarily negative, impact of divorce on children and how it affects them as adults and parents. Berner is sensitive to the hurt and pain of divorce as he covers these timely questions and their related issues.

Parents Whose Parents Were Divorced enables adult children of divorce to see how others in the same situation are dealing with divorce and its implications. The book discusses how children of divorce behave as parents, what adjustments they made in their lives, whether or not they would divorce, the role of divorced grandparents, and how many grown children have attempted reconciliation with their parents. Experts in marital counseling will find this highly readable book helpful in their everyday work with couples and families, as will adults who have lived through the trauma of divorce.
