When parents separate

I have first hand experience of the difficulties that can arise when a relationship with a partner breaks down but both of us still have to communicate in order to parent our children. This can be fraught with difficulties and I am not sure I managed this as well as I would have liked.


In my work as a child counsellor and a Parent-child relationship therapist I have found a few resources that others might find helpful and I surely would have if I had known about them (or they had been around) when my children were young.

A couple of books that can be shared with children:


The Invisible String by Patrice Karst


Mum and Dad Glue by Kes Gray


A Book that I believe is a must read for all parents, carers, professionals who work with children etc.


The book you wish your parents had read by Philippa Perry
