When Max’s parents tell him they are divorcing it feels like an earthquake. There are so many changes to deal with and a lot of big feelings. Follow Max as he begins to move and live between his two homes, learns about his emotions and adjusts to life after the ‘divorce earthquake’.
This beautifully illustrated children's picture book is aimed at 4 to 7 year olds whose parents are (or have) separated.
Max's Divorce Earthquake will help children and their parents to be aware of the various emotions that children might feel when their parents separate. It will also assist children to build their emotional vocabulary, to talk about and explore their experiences of their parent's divorce, as well as reassure them that whatever it is they are feeling is completely normal. Tips from psychologist and author, Rachel Brace are included in the back of the book about how parents and carers can help emotionally support their children during parental separation and divorce.
This book is an invaluable resource for friends, family members, therapeutic professionals, Mediators and Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners, who want to support young children cope with the feelings generated by family break-down.
