It’s a sad reality that around 48 percent of all marriages end in divorce within 20 years, and many of these dissolutions involve children. Although it can be better for children to see their parents separate rather than stay in a high-conflict relationship, dealing with divorce can still be hard on a child.
Some children of divorce struggle with behavioral and emotional issues, but research suggests that negative effects of divorce may be counteracted through using play and narrative to help children better comprehend how their family is changing.
These popular divorce books for children can be a huge help for parents going through this difficult time. Reading these books with your child can help them process their feelings, open up about the complex emotions they are experiencing and have a better understanding of how their lives will look once their parents have separated.
