When a family hits a storm, parents can be so keen to want their kids to be ok that they can miss listening to their children and validating their experience. This book is an excellent tool for children and parents to work through difficult feelings and thoughts, bringing understanding at such a challenging time. Often, children can have a deep seated belief that it is their fault; this journal is an excellent tool to address these issues and help children build a coherent narrative of their own story.
Sue has created a unique journal for children who experience divorce. It is important that children are able to express their feelings during this difficult time for the whole family. In the divorce journal for kids, children can write down their thoughts and feelings and share this with their parents. I will 100% share this bespoke journal with parents and schools.
As a parent advisor, I recommend Sue Atkins' 'Divorce Journal' to families on a regular basis. It's the only resource I have found that deals with the emotional and practical aspects of a divorced/fragmented family with the child at the centre. This carefully constructed journal really does cover every aspect - it's extremely useful for both parents and for therapists working with children. I've had such positive feedback from clients and fellow counsellors. It's easy to use, very child friendly and has great results.
It provides a realistic way to help - an opportunity for children to reflect on their feelings, talk to their parents and feel valued.
A perfect resource to empower children to manage their feelings and emotions through a divorce, so they are able to 'be' with their experience more, process what's happening better and a resource from which, more understanding conversations can happen with parents.
An empowering much needed journal for children packed full of helpful tools to guide them on their own journey through their parents divorce. A must have support tool for your kids.
