The founder of the Child-Centered Divorce Network, Rosalind Sedacca, praises Family Changes: Explaining Divorce To Children, as an “outstanding book“.
Ms. Sedacca states: “Family Changes: Explaining Divorce to Children is a new book written by Azmaira Maker, Ph.D. As founder of the Child-Centered Divorce Network, I am often sent new books on family changes for children. I always look forward to reading them, hoping they will have the tone, voice, message and visuals that convey what parents want their children to know and understand. Sadly, I have been disappointed in most of the books I’ve received.
That’s why I’m so excited to share with you this new book from psychologist Azmaira Maker, Ph.D. It helps young children understand what divorce means and how it will impact their lives. It’s hard for us, as grown-ups, to explain it to them in terms they can fully comprehend. Nonetheless, when a child is involved in a family divorce or separation, it is crucial that he or she understands and embraces the changes… and this book will help a parent explain the transitions to their child.
Family Changes also serves as a guideline for adults in terms of what to expect developmentally, emotionally, and cognitively from young children. It provides adults with specific statements, questions, and content related to separation and divorce that facilitates a developmental and normative understanding of the child’s concerns and feelings.”
