This book was recommended to me by a person who worked in the court system, in the custody section. I read it and had my then seperated husband read it. We both thought it sounded great and began to practice it. Now, some 10 years later, I can see the damage it has done to my children in regards to their academic career. It is too hard for children to be moved during the middle of the school week and be expected to keep up on all of their projects and assignement. I wish I had never read this book, because I feel it has been a great detriment to my children.

According to the Stepfamily Association of America, 60 percent of all families are breaking up, and custody and visitation issues loom large in the lives of many parents. Isolina Ricci's Mom's House, Dad's House guides separated, divorced, and remarried parents through the hassles and confusions of setting up a strong, working relationship with the ex-spouse in order to make two loving homes for the kids. This expanded and revised edition (the book was originally published in 1980) includes emotional and legal tools, as well as many reference materials and resources. As one parent said of the first edition, "This book is my friend."

This book helped me in so many ways when I was going through my divorce. It gave me lots of tools to use during and after the process. It also has great reminders and tips about helping your child to cope with this change.

This book had a thought provoking approach to trying to co-parent after a divorce. My ex-husband and I were able to use many of the concepts and ideas in this book as we tried to establish two healthy homes for our young son. The book helps you see some of the strategies, and potential pitfalls, in helping your child live in two households.

This book was more than helpful...it gave me a guideline to follow in trying to keep the best interests of my daughter at heart while dealing with the dissolution of my marriage. My ex and I have been practicing this 'two home' technique for three years, with excellent results. This book has my highest recommendation. You owe it to your children to at least read and consider the suggestions.

This book is a must buy if you are going through divorce/separation. It gets you to think of the needs of your children and bringing them up in two healthy homes despite the current situation.
