Dogs of Divorce

Divorce. Are you going through it? Do you have friends or family who are? Do you provide legal or emotional counseling for those going through it? If so, this adaptation is a must-read for anyone trying to understand the complex mess called divorce.

The Dogs of Divorce is a hilarious "who-done-it" and "why-done-it." This riveting journey delves deeply in search of the many psychological drivers of divorce, with the agony and euphoria - even serendipity - played out in a story to which many can relate.


Roughly based on the author's own experience, this book introduces us to a 40-something husband and father of three teens, who is suddenly served with divorce papers after 24 years of marriage.

Stunned at first, he comes to understand that the signs had been building for years, and he must reconstruct the clues... between countless trips to the courthouse and the bewildering maze of legal and emotional twists and turns.

Helping Your Children Cope with Divorce and Its Aftermath

Amazon.com Review
Vicki Lansky's Divorce Book for Parents is a pragmatic yet warm and understanding guide for parents and children on just about every aspect of divorce. From tips on talking to the kids about it, to information on negotiating the realities of custody and child support, Lansky demystifies the divorce process, including the emotional aspects.
A parenting writer of many books (Feed Me, I'm Yours), Lansky is also a divorced, single mother. Her combination of information, humor, and compassion make the Divorce Book for Parents a valuable resource.
From Library Journal
Basing her approach on the belief that children are affected less by divorce itself than by the way a family is restructured and the way feelings are handled afterward, Lansky--herself a divorced mother and the author of Feed Me! I'm Yours (Meadowbrook, 1986. rev. ed.) and other books--presents a highly practical and optimistic guide for divorced and divorcing parents.
Among the many problem areas she covers, all from the perspective of doing what is best for the child, are breaking the news, the danger of continuing conflict, deciding when professional help is needed, organizing--and surviving--departure, dealing with the ex-spouse, and long-term adjustment. "You might think I'm painting a rather rosy picture in this book and that the real world doesn't work like this," she admits. "But it can. " Highly recommended for all public library collections.
