July is National Child-Centered Divorce Month, dedicated to alerting parents about the harm to their children when divorce isn’t handled effectively. Repeated studies show that it isn’t divorce per se that damages children. It’s the mistakes that unaware parents make before, during and after divorce that does the harm.
Throughout July divorce attorneys, mediators, therapists, financial planners, coaches, educators, clergy and other professionals concerned about the effects of divorce on children will be sharing their advice and insights on the topic. Their goal is to educate parents about the choices they do have before moving into divorce to prevent negative consequences for children of all ages.
During July parents are encouraged to visit a special web page at which they can download a variety of free ebooks, audio presentations, services and other gifts from divorce professionals throughout North America. They can also access a series of free teleclasses presented by “child-centered” divorce experts providing sound advice on divorce and parenting issues. The complimentary information is available at www.childsharing.com/childcentereddivorce.
In addition, divorce experts from coast to coast will also be announcing local educational events including teleseminars, workshops, discussion groups, coaching and other activities designed for divorced parents and those contemplating divorce.
National Child-Centered Divorce Month was initiated by divorced parent and author Rosalind Sedacca, a certified corporate trainer and Relationship Coach who is recognized as The Voice of Child-Centered Divorce. Sedacca founded the Child-Centered Divorce Network for parents and works closely with concerned divorce experts around the globe who are focused on providing ways to create the most positive and harmonious outcomes for families transitioning through divorce.
“My goal is to catch divorcing parents before they make mistakes they will regret when it comes to their children’s emotional well-being,” says Sedacca. “By bringing the nation’s legal, therapeutic and educational communities together we can reach out with messages designed to encourage peaceful divorce outcomes.
We want to discuss the painful consequences of parental alienation, encourage respectful co-parenting, teach effective communication skills, and guide parents away from litigation-based solutions,” she adds.
Sedacca, a divorced and later remarried parent, is the author of the internationally acclaimed ebook, How Do I Tell the Kids about the Divorce? A Create-a-Storybook Guide to Preparing Your Children — with Love! Her now grown son wrote the book’s foreword. Sedacca is also the founder of the Child-Centered Divorce Network which provides a free newsletter, blog, articles, coaching services and other valuable resources for parents at //www.childcentereddivorce.com.
“We can never overemphasize how dramatically parental decisions about divorce can affect and scar our children – for years – and often for a lifetime,” says Sedacca.
