    Highly Recommended

    While those of us who have children feel that by the time they reach adulthood we will be out of the woods, this book highlights a difficult yet all too common contemporary issue, our childrens' divorce. Somehow, there has not been a book about this subject until now. Your Child's Divorce is a well written, expertly drawn attempt to demystify the process of being closely involved with an adult child's decision to end a marriage. There is a clear progression of the natural stages of coping, which mirror the stages of grief outlined by Dr. Kubler-Ross, and the ancedotal material helps in placing you, the reader, squarely in the midst of the issues. Not preachy, not psychopathologizing, this book is focused on the real, familiar crisis which seems to be growing every year. Would we like not to need this book? Certainly, but if you are one of the thousands of parents whose children have rearranged your universe, I highly recommend this book. It will bring you rational coping skills and most of all, a way of both helping your child, possibly your grandchildren, and coming out of this an intact, extended family.

    A divorce lawyer's view

    This book is very well written. But, in addition to that, from the perspective of a lawyer who has been handling divorces for 40 years, it provides invaluable advice for the parents of a divorcing couple. For all too many of my clients, the unhelpful reactions & advice of their parents have made a painful & difficult process all the more so.

    'Your Child's Divorce' an important Tool for Social Workers working with families

    This book is an excellent tool for any social worker working with parents who are navigating the murky waters of their children's divorce, especially if grandchildren are involved. Ms. Temlock has identified an often overlooked group of grieving family members who can be and often are already an integral part of the lives of their grandchildren. But even if the divorcing couple does NOT have children, the parents of the couple are left wondering how to divorce themselves from this other person whom they have often welcomed as their own daughter or son. This book helps these parents see what stage they are entering and how best to handle that stage, so they can be most supportive of their own child, inclusive of the grandchildren and how to take care of themselves during this family storm that re-arranges the family's definition and identities. Every social worker working with these kinds of families can use this easy to read and easy to understand book as a tool to help families become their own unique 'new family'. Thanks to Marsha Temlock for a great book with insight, humor and wonderful guidance.
