Half of those children will also witness the breakup of a parent's second marriage (Furstenberg). ?

Page 45 of 83 TIP SHEET TIP SHEET ? The negative effect of divorce on children can be most often attributed not to the divorce itself, but to the hostile and stressful home environment that divorce can create because of conflict between the parents after the divorce. Description: The negative effect that divorce has on kids is most often not the result of the divorce itself, but the negative, hostile, and combative nature of the parents' relationship. Not all divorces need to follow this unhappy script, but all too many do. Befriending Your Ex After Divorce is the guide divorced parents really need to develop a healthy post divorce relationship with their ex spouses. It features effective techniques for making peace with an ex spouse for the sake of the entire family. This book shows readers that it's both possible and desirable to have a positive, platonic relationship with an ex spouse long over the dissolution of a marriage. This type of post divorce relationship is becoming more and more common and benefits everyone involved. The parents are able to cooperate in raising children, and both parents are able to offer each other support in the wake of divorce. The true stories and practical suggestions in this book show how ex spouses can become supportive allies and partners through the ups and downs of parenting.
