Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Basing her approach on the belief that children are affected less by divorce itself than by the way a family is restructured and the way feelings are handled afterward, Lansky--herself a divorced mother and the author of Feed Me! I'm Yours (Meadowbrook, 1986. rev. ed.) and other books--presents a highly practical and optimistic guide for divorced and divorcing parents. Among the many problem areas she covers, all from the perspective of doing what is best for the child, are breaking the news, the danger of continuing conflict, deciding when professional help is needed, organizing--and surviving--departure, dealing with the ex-spouse, and long-term adjustment. ``You might think I'm painting a rather rosy picture in this book and that the real world doesn't work like this,'' she admits. ``But it can. '' Highly recommended for all public library collections.-- Marcia G. Fuchs, Guilford Free Lib., Ct.
