"Rosalind Sedacca has just improved the lives of countless children. I have practiced divorce law for 44 years and will attest to the importance of how children are introduced to their parents' divorce.

It's all good and it beats anything else that I've come across. In fact, it's great and it is definitely something that the world has needed. The book is a winner and it is also a lifesaver."

After 32 years of counseling people in various stages of uncoupling, I can testify to the urgent need of a "how to" guide for people contemplating divorce. This book offers them a "life preserver." I have already referred my patients to this material and have received great feedback. I cannot recommend this book highly enough."

Beverly Gibel, LCSW, ACSW, BCD

"Rosalind Sedacca's 'How Do I Tell the Kids about the DIVORCE?' is a much needed breakthrough in the emotional minefield that parents traverse when they prepare their children for an impending divorce. The template, storybook strategy sends sensitive, kind, loving and safe messages which every child needs as they prepare for the scary unknown. I recommend her book for everyone who has children and is contemplating divorce."

postheadericon Facing Fears Through Divorce: Fear, much like a circus mirror, distorts our view of reality!

Откъде да купя иконаBy Guest Blogger Karen McMahon

We each have fears as we go through the divorce process.  Our fears are often based in the unknown.  Everything is so uncertain, it is impossible to see around the bend to know what your life is going to look like when you emerge on the other side.  So our minds begin to ‘figure it out’.  The way we do this is to go to the ‘what if’s’.  What if I don’t have enough money?  What if I cannot hold down a job and take care of my kids?  What if I don’t get to see my kids?  What if the kids like my ex’s new partner more than me?  What if I am unable to afford decent housing?  What if….  The fear can be overwhelming!

When I went through my divorce, I was in sales and had lost three quarters of my clients in one year.  I couldn’t imagine how I would be able to move into a home and support my children and a household on my own.  I was also afraid that the courts might give primary custody to my kid’s dad. Then there was the fear that even if I could afford a place and have my children, I would never be able to juggle it all. I was so overwhelmed with my fears that I couldn’t think straight.  It made each decision I had to make all the more monumental and left me frozen and fearful of destroying my future with each possible wrong decision.The truth is, our worst fears are often unfounded.  I often hear people say that they are going to be left homeless penniless and unable to support their families.  When we dig below the surface, many of our fears are extreme exaggerations of the worst case scenario.  Often times the worst case scenario is not what you are faced with and even if you are, your fears of what that looks like are completely distorted.

How does it serve you to consider the worst case scenario and then exaggerate it to the tenth power?

I would dare to say, not only doesn’t it benefit you; it has quite the opposite effect.  You are left paralyzed by fear; not the fear of the unknown, but rather the fear of the unrealistically exaggerated worst case scenario.  So how do you begin to turn this around?

It makes sense that you are concerned and unsure of the future.  What you do with that concern is the key:

  1. Acknowledge your fears
  2. List the possible outcomes — Make sure to list both the positive and negative possibilities
  3. For each ask yourself,
    • How true is it?
    • What is another possibility?
    • How might I avoid that or How might I insure that possibility?
    • What would I have to do to make that a reality?
  1. Do all that you can to prepare and then trust, hope, take a leap of faith that all will be okay.

We cannot know what tomorrow holds but we can prepare for it as best possible.  After that we are left with the option to trust, believe and have faith in the outcome; to hope for the best.  The other option is to white-knuckle it with every expectation that our future will be doom and gloom.  If you believe that energy attracts like energy, which approach will be more beneficial…fear or faith?
