What can I do to help my kids through divorce?
First, Purchase the My Journey My Journal for each kid in divorce you have!
Family psychologists and counselors tell us that the number one thing kids need while going through divorce is a way for them to be able to express themselves. Part of that expression is a parent or trusted adult to be there for them to talk to and offer support. The other part of that expression is an avenue for the k.i.d. to write and/or draw their feelings, fears and questions.
FOR YOUR K.I.D.: Here is a free sample page from our My Journey My Jouranl: a journal for kids going though divorce. Save and make extra copies so you can use again and again.
The Today Page will open up lines of communication between you and your k.i.d. It also allows them to share and express their feelings, fears and questions in a subtle way. If your k.i.d. is having a hard day, sit down with them and each of you fill out a Today Page and then share what you each put down. You will most likely be amazed at what is shared!
You have permission to use these free pages as much as you need for your own personal use. Do not sell, trade or give them away to anyone else. If you know someone who could use them, please refer them to familyindivorce.com. Thank you!

Are you concerned with what effect divorce may have on your child?
You are not alone!! We hear and read questions like this on a daily basis. You want the best for your kid in divorce (k.i.d), that is why you are reading this right now. Divorce can be a challenging and stressful time but you are not alone. And although the family dynamic may be changed by divorce, you still have a family and we are happy to be part of your extended family during and after the divorce journey.
My name is Everett Libby and with the help of a small dedicated team, we created this site with the sole purpose of helping parents help their kids through divorce. We realize that you may not even be the parent of the k.i.d. you know. Maybe you are the grandparent, teacher or a family friend. Whatever the case may be, I want to say 'Thank You' for caring enough to put forth the effort of seeking help during this challenging time.

Divorce stats for kids
When compared to children from homes disrupted by death, children from divorced homes have statistically more psychological problems.
(Robert E. Emery, Marriage, Divorce and Children’s Adjustment, Sage Publications, 1988).
Following divorce, children are fifty percent more likely to develop health problems than two parent families. (Angel, Worobey, Single Motherhood and Children’s Health)
