Divorce & Kids

Category : Books, Children, Healing

I just read this cute little children’s book about a divorces’ impact on young kids entitled, “Standing on My Own Two Feet: A Child’s Affirmation of Love in the Midst of Divorce.”

Divorce is a difficult time for the parents, but let’s not forget about the children.  They are often in a state of confusion and self blame.  They can feel they should have done more to keep their parents together.  Or, even worse they feel the divorce is their fault.  This book addresses these problems and is delivered in a humorous, healing and straight-forward manner that’s easy for children to understand and relate to.

The book is seen through the eyes of Addison — a regular kid whose parents are going through divorce.  The multi-talented author and illustrator, Tamara Schmitz, delivers lines that children will relate to like, “Just like I have two feet… I have two homes.” The moral here is no matter what happens, Addison’s parents will always love him.  Great drawings.  Fun writing. This will help ease the transition for any child whose parents are divorcing.

Really cute!

An important message for young children. I hope there are other well-written books out there for children of all ages.

I suspect that divorce leaves a permanent scar on all children, no matter their age…
