Spoiled Children of Divorce

Failure, How to Deal

Here’s one article about how to deal with failure.

Divorce is, after all, failure.

What Children of D may or may not need to know is that sometimes it is more difficult to watch others fail than to actually suffer a failure your self.

I remember reading about a study which was done on some rats.  Part of the rats were tortured physically.  They, of course, suffered afterwards.  What the researchers found was that the other rats in the cage who weren’t tortured but who watched the torture developed the worst after effects of stress.

Wish I could remember what that study was.  I think that cocaine addiction was somehow involved if that makes sense and I know it doesn’t.  Sorry.

Divorce can be extremely traumatic to families, especially children. My children’s picture book, Living With Mom, Spending Time With Dad which has been honored as a “Finalist” in the “Children’s Picture Book Category! by USA BookNews.com, takes us through a myriad of emotions that two children, Stephen and Alex, experience through this tumultuous period. Young Alex especially gives an extremely candid and honest account of the day-to-day trauma, the hostility and at times the many poignant memories that he has. Living with Mom, Spending Time with Dad also addresses the concerns and anguish of being torn between two parents. Throughout the story there is that underlying hope that everything will turn out alright and everyone will be back in their original comfort zone. This book is truly endearing and tugs at your heart strings, particularly with the fervent prayer from Alex that God will make everything alright again.
