What About the Kids

Fathers and children need each other after divorce. But all of a sudden, you're
confused about how to go about being a good father. Part of the reason is that

The groundbreaking handbook that helps parents guide their children through divorce and co-parenting -- including the introduction of step-parents -- from a New York Times bestselling author and child psychologist. This is the definitive work from the renowned child psychologist Judith Wallerstein on a subject that concerns millions of American moms and dads: How can you protect your children during and after divorce? Divorce is not a single event but a lifelong trajectory of changed circumstances that demand a different kind of parenting than we have ever known. In What About the Kids? Wallerstein draws on thirty years of in-depth interviews with children of divorce and their parents to show how to create a new family with compassion and wisdom. It covers issues that arise at the time of divorce as well as suggestions for talking to your children months and years after the event. Eminent psychologist Judith S. Wallerstein shares her unique insight and advice in What About the Kids? -- the first comprehensive guide to easing the impact of divorce on your children -- including: The best and worst ages for children to experience their parents' divorce Right and wrong ways to explain divorce to your children Choosing a custody arrangement that's best for your child How to involve the grandparents -- a major resource? Getting the children on your side when you form new relationships The positive effects of divorce on children (believe it or not) How divorce can actually make you a better parent Raising children who grow up able to form lasting relationships

There's a battle going on in public education right now. Education reform is every politician's favorite new cause. But educators, the experts in teaching and learning, are being left out of the conversation. And true education reform cannot happen until we see the issues clearly. Edgy, funny and poignant, Kids, Classrooms, and Capitol Hill explores the issues, big and small, facing the key players in what sometimes feels like an impossible quest-- educating our nation's youth. So before you choose sides, read this book. Chances are you won't hear this point of view from people who are actually working in schools. If there's one thing educators are afraid of, it's that they'll say the wrong thing and tarnish their beloved profession. So they spout the party line and make nice, zealously guarding the truth and the reputations of their schools. But the truth is this: This thing called education is complicated, messy, excruciatingly difficult, humbling, humorous, aggravating, and fleetingly, rewarding.
