Many parents are often left with little guidance as to how to help their children cope with the many feelings they are having. Children's books can be an excellent tool for people who are looking for a creative way to teach kids how to deal with the many emotions that may arise as a result of parental relationship changes.

The entire family will most likely be affected when a married couple decides to divorce or separate, and young children can have an especially hard time during this process. Many parents are often left with little guidance as to how to help their children cope with the many feelings they are having. Children's books can be an excellent tool for people who are looking for a creative way to teach kids how to deal with the many emotions that may arise as a result of parental relationship changes. Books offer a way to catch a child's attention while creating an atmosphere that lets them know it is okay to talk about the events. They can also open the door for achieving dialog about the subject. The use of books, versus discussion only, allows the child to use imagination, and reading stories about the lives of others can be much easier on the child rather than direct conversation. Reading can also be helpful to older children and teens through identification with characters.
