Separation and divorce are traumatic events for families.
My journal is designed to help children express, explore and understand some of the strong emotions that they may be feeling and to help them process the divorce for themselves.
Keeping a Journal is a very simple, but powerful way to support children.
As caring adults, we can help by simply acknowledging & listening to how a child may be feeling, without trying to “fix it”.
The Divorce Journal for Kids is designed to support open and honest communication and to help children feel heard, understood and supported during a time of great upheaval.
Here is a selection of good books to start those big conversations with children that show that families can come in all shapes and sizes – suitable for a range of ages from The Book Trust.
