Too often, following a divorce, parent's expend too much energy on negative feelings toward an ex-spouse. This book will help parents become more satisfied in all areas of their life.

The Divorced Parent's Challenge
The Divorced Parent's Challenge

Experiencing a divorce causes your life, as well as the lives around you, to be jerked in some way. You may have been caught by surprise or experienced reverberations you never imagined possible. If you have a child, he or she has also experienced jerks. When a child’s parents are not coping effectively with their divorce, the jerks are compounded.

Jerks can be experienced on several different levels.
They can be physical or emotional. The word is also used to describe a person who acts like a jerk by behaving in selfserving ways.

When a jerk is experienced emotionally, there are
no such outward manifestations, at least not ones that are immediately visible to others. Those who experience emotional jerking are bruised
psychologically. A divorce causes these types of jerks. If you are divorced, you know what this means. So does your child.


Too often, following a divorce, parents attempt to punish each other and in the process add to the anguish of their children. Extreme negative emotions can exist for some divorced parents in their relationship with an ex-spouse. “Moving right” is accomplished when the focus is on the love we feel for our children instead of the negative feelings we harbor toward an ex spouse.

The connection is through the child and when kept in the forefront of our minds, it becomes more difficult to take action against someone who cares about one of our children. Our unresolved issues should never deny our children the love and attention of other responsible adults. When you tackle this challenge, you and your child will experience more happiness.

Reader Reviews for "The Divorced Parent's Challenge: Eight lessons to teach love & forgiveness"

Reviewed by Richard Orey 5/26/2007
For many years my mantra has been, "Family Comes First."
But when the family gets fractured by divorce, the children of that family are the biggest victims and the real losers.

As adults, we face many challenges as a divorced parent. "Moving right" is a great expression, Cheryl, for doing the right thing.
And my experience has been that most divorced parents are confused and in their hearts don't really know what is the right thing.

But the highest priority of all comes in putting the children's interests first. They are defenseless to an attack on their security, an attack that can scar them for years and affect them for their entire lives.

Cheryl, I believe your book is a great resource book for parents facing "The Divorced Parent's Challenge."

Divorce is the "jerk" of a lifetime. Your book will help greatly.
