This is a power-point audiobook in the I-Can-Do-It Book series. This audiobook covers post-divorce adjustment problems for children, adolescents and young adults. They are the Children of Divorce (CoD). Divorce is a surrealistic and confusing time. Family permanence shatters, venerability of parents dissolves, the covenant of safety ends, feelings of victimization and abandonment intensify, and the expected new role of the offspring - as sympathizer or mediator - forces unwanted changes. As survivors, CoD's suffer predictable symptoms of resentment, family alienation, identity revision, parent replacement, and depression. In this audiobook, parents learn concrete steps to show CoD's how to (a) sample the parent's new world, (b) treat the parent as he or she did before the divorce, (c) view parent as having mortal flaws, and (d) invite the parent to care for them and their own offspring. You will briefly read information, then see a power point slide. Then, answer a question about what you just saw. This allows for fast-learning, and ready-to-use skills.
