Winner of a Parent’s Guide to Children’s Media (Parenting Division) Award!
Here’s what the judges had to say:
“Divorce itself is tough on children, but constant, often bitter conflict that persists after the divorce makes it even tougher. Divorced or divorcing parents will find the workbook and video vignettes openly address likely areas of conflict and offer possible solutions that keep parents centered on what they can both agree on: the happiness and well-being of their child. Open communication and genuine respect, even amidst understandable differences, ground the conflict-resolving strategies.”
