Book Description: From the New York Times bestselling author of The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce -- a groundbreaking guide that tells parents what they need to know to protect their children at the time of the breakup and in the many years that follow within the post-divorce and remarried family. The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce gave us new and important insight into the long-term effects of divorce on children who have grown into adulthood. What About the Kids? is a new book that tells parents in unprecedented detail how to help their children over the long haul -- what to say, what to do, what to expect -- every step of the way. Tapping into the latest findings on how children develop, this clearly written guidebook helps parents understand why children at different ages react the way they do to divorce and how to head off trouble before it begins. The book follows divorce chronologically so parents can find advice for whatever stage of the experience they are in, including how to help older children many years after the breakup.
