Family psychologists and counselors tell us that the #1 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.
"I have used and seen many divorce books for kids and yours really stuck out to me because it allows kids to express feelings and takes a closer look at what they are going through in a fun and interactive way." S. Paxton, Elementary School Counselor
We created the My Journey My Journal with the kid in divorce at heart. While most books for kids going through divorce are all about teaching kids what divorce is, the My Journey My Journal is all about letting the kid in divorce express what they are feeling and share their emotions. Read more>
"I got two of the My Journey My Journals and they have opened up a line of communication for me and my boys." Tara B.
"How will divorce effect my kids?"
"What can I do to help my kids through divorce?"
We hear and read questions like these 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.
Here is a brief history of how this site came to be. Like many adults, I have experienced divorce as a child and as an adult. It was devastating to me to hear my parents say, 'We have decided to get a divorce' and I was heartbroken when my own kids had to go through divorce. Over a period of a couple years, I realized that I have a heart for families going through divorce and with the help and encouragement from family and friends, I created the I'm a k.i.d. program for kids going through divorce. So far, over 800 kids have gone through the I'm a k.i.d. program!! From that came the My Journey My Journal, the #1 journal for kids going through divorce. Simultaneously, familyindivorce.com was created to so we would be able to reach a greater number of families in divorce!
You are not alone!!
