"I was excited by this book and its focus on the needs of children, and I strongly recommend it to all separating and divorcing parents and to their advisors."—Ann Mitchell, Marriage Guidance

"Excellent."—Anna Freud

"This is a very helpful and valuable book for parents facing separation and divorce."—Dr. Lee Salk

"Every caring, responsible, divorced parent should become well-acquainted with the fund of invaluable information and practical suggestions to be found in this lucid, compassionate book."—Maggie Scarf

"Practical, comprehensive, sensitive—this kindly book will make life less painful and easier to cope with for any family faced with the difficult problems of divorce."—Louise Bates Ames, Associate Director, Gesell Institute of Human Development

"Although there are many good books on children and divorce, this one is unique because it focuses entirely on the children's point of view. Lawyer Goldstein and child psychiatrist Solnit discuss children's needs and perceptions during separation, divorce, and remarriage with practical suggestions for parents. . . . The book itself is very basic, but provides notes and references for more in-depth information. The glossary is a helpful addition. For most parent education/divorce collections."—Library Journal

"Should be read by school counselors and social workers, divorce mediators, custody investigators and judges, as well as parents, so that they can make it available to families before custody battles begin. By doing so, they can help to lessen the traumas and emotional reactions to divorce for many children. If parents use the information and advice presented by Goldstein and Solnit, they will help their children feel secure and loved in spite of the trauma of divorce."—Mary Beth Williams, Children Today
