With the divorce rate at 50%, half of the all students are impacted by divorce. This compelling video features real kids who describe their feelings about divorce and share with viewers their first-hand experiences. Divorce expert and psychologist, Valerie Raymond, reassures young teens that while things may be tough now, they will get better with time. Video segments target key problems: living arrangements, schedules, feelings of blame, getting caught between fighting parents, coping with strong emotions (anger, sorrow, acting out and more), parents’ new love interests, and blended families.  The real kids describe their personal coping strategies in their own words to help viewers understand that there are practical solutions that may help in transitioning through divorce to whatever the future may bring.

Includes Resource Guide.
