An internationally renowned authority on children and divorce reveals the latest research-based strategies for helping children survive and thrive before, during, and long after their parents divorce. The breakup of a family can have an enduring impact on children. But as Dr. JoAnne Pedro-Carroll explains with clarity and compassion in this powerful book, parents canpositively alter the immediate and long-term effects of divorce on their children.

Now she shares practical, research- based advice that helps parents: •gain a deeper understanding of what their children are experiencing •develop emotionally intelligent parenting strategies with the critical combination of boundless love and appropriate limits on behavior •reduce conflict with a former spouse and protect children from conflict's damaging effects •learn what recent brain research reveals about stress and children's developing capabilities Filled with the voices and drawings of children and the stories of families, Putting Children Firstdelivers a positive vision for a future of hope and healing.
