Surviving Divorce: Teens Talk About What Hurts And What Helps (Choices) Reviews
Divorce can be just as stressful for children and teens as it is for adults. Unfortunately, most children are not able to articulate their suffering. I purchased this book for a 7th grade student after noticing negative changes in his classroom behavior and attitude towards school. When I asked him what was going on, he gave me the typical middle school boy response, "Nothing." However, with some gentle persistence and questioning, he confided he was having trouble coping with his parents' one year old divorce. I believe there's a book for almost anything that ails you, so I turned Amazon to find a book written for teens about divorce. After reviewing several titles, the student selected this one. The book arrived 2 days later. I discretely passed it to him the next day at the start of class, To my surprise, he chose to read it during our 20 minutes of Sustained Silent Reading. The best endorsement for this book is the student has read it cover-to-cover and has shared it with others. Based on this student's response, I would not hesitate to purchase this book again.
I use this book for middle/high school students going through the trauma of divorce (as bibliotherapy). It is well written and easy to understand.
