Helping Kids Heal is a new series from Zonderkidz designed to help children cope with traumatic experiences in their lives. At the end of each book R. Scott Stehower, Ph.D., professor of psychology, Calvin College, and clinical psychologist, provides suggestions for parents and caregivers of hurting children. These books reassure children that God is with them always.
Divorce creates deep pain for children and makes them wonder: if Mom and Dad stopped loving each other, will they stop loving me? Children often blame themselves for the divorce and wish that things could go back to the way they were. They may hate the stress of having to go back and forth between their parents' houses. Included are two pages of suggestions for parents and others helping a child through loss.
