Divorce Happens to the Nicest Kids:
A Self Help Book for Kids

Michael S. Prokop


Reading Level: Ages 9 - 12

Psychologist Michael S. Prokop explains divorce in a positive and reassuring manner as he consicely disproves fourteen irrational false beliefs concerning divorce that often cause children and adolescents to feel anxious, guilty, nervous and depressed. After each false belief the "parent's section" discusses important recommendations for divorcing parents. The book takes the reader, step-by-step, from "False Belief" to "True Statement" as it discusses such critical issues as causes of divorce, parental problems and remarriage, living with one parent, fears of abandonment, living on less money, academic regression, mood swings, support people, and more.
