Divorce is a stressful time in the lives of parents and children and Lisa Rene Reynolds's audiobook Parenting through Divorce: Helping Your Children Thrive During and After the Split aims to help alleviate some of that stress. Using years of research and firsthand experience as her source, Reynolds lays out dozens of simple ways that parents can help lessen the trauma of separation for their children.

Ward's warm tone helps ease the pain of the difficult process that is divorce.
A repository of wisdom and practical counsel for any family going through a divorce.
Divorce has devastating effects on children. Yet for divorcing parents who carefully consider and manage the intricacies associated with this difficult time, both parents, as seen from the child’s perspective, can remain as loving and supportive as they ever were.
Parenting through Divorce concisely lays out the specific emotions and reactions parents need to anticipate from their children while going through separation, divorce, and its after-math. Rather than weighing parents down with complicated plans, confusing information, and legal terminology, this book takes a common-sense approach, providing listeners in a state of emotional distress with the practical, down-to-earth advice they need to sensibly and comfortingly guide their children through this often painful process. Covering the most common mistakes divorcing parents tend to make, as well as addressing special issues that come up for kids of different age groups, this book helps you retain a strong, healthy, and loving environment for your child, even in the midst of change. This is a much-needed repository of wisdom and practical counsel for any family going through a time of heightened feelings and fragile relationships.

"A lighthouse for piloting the stormy seas for separating families"
I found that this book offers both very simple and obvious advice all the way through to incredibly insightful and applicable ways of steering my behavioural boat through the stormy seas of separation with my spouse, so as to minimise the harm that could to my children.
What I liked must was gaining understanding of how divorce may be seen from a child's point of view and tips and tricks on how to acknowledge and speak about the powerful emotions and feelings coming up and the life changes taking place. It was equally informative about what not to say and share with the children!
I also found the narrator very easy to listen to.
All in all a lighthouse in the storm of separating families.
