— from divorce and parenting experts around the world

commemorating the 16th Annual

International Child-Centered Divorce Month

2021 International Child-Centered Divorce Month logo

In the U.S. today nearly 4 out of 10 first marriages end in divorce. Even more significant, 60% of divorcing couples have children, resulting in more than one million kids each year experiencing the divorce of their parents.

The consequence of parental divorce takes its toll on everyone in the family. An estimated 25 million children (36%) live apart from their biological father with about 26% of absentee fathers living in a different state than their kids. Close to 17 million children (25%) are living with their single mothers.

It may come as no surprise that more divorces are initiated in January than in any other month. A large majority of parents wait until after the holiday season before breaking the divorce news to their children.

For this reason, Rosalind Sedacca, founder of the Child-Centered Divorce Network, chose January to commemorate the annual recognition of International Child-Centered Divorce Month. The purpose of ICCD Month is to educate parents and the media about how to identify, prevent and address painful consequences for children during and after separation or divorce.

To help parents minimize the negative effects of divorce on children we provide useful advice, tools and resources they can use to protect and support their kids through successful co-parenting following divorce.

We do this by enlisting family-focused divorce experts – legal professionals,   coaches, parenting experts, therapists, financial planners and others around the world. Each one provides complimentary support to help parents best cope with divorce and parenting issues. This takes the form of free ebooks, coaching sessions, videos, audio programs, special reports and other useful, downloadable, content-rich material of value to families facing challenges related to divorce and its aftermath.

These free gifts are available throughout the month of January

 at a special website:

Once you visit the website and enter your email address, you can choose among free gifts from participating divorce experts in North America, Europe, Australia, and beyond.

Rosalind is proud to introduce you to the special sponsors

According to Rosalind Sedacca, who is a Divorce & Co-Parenting Coach: “In the heat of the emotional drama, confusion and upheaval that often comes with divorce, we can forget the impact it has on our children. But it’s essential to understand that regardless of your own emotional state, you must put your children’s needs first when making decisions related to divorce or separation. That’s not always easy, especially if your partner doesn’t agree with you on parenting parameters. That’s why we’ve assembled such an outstanding selection of support materials and services from experts who are committed to the child-centered approach to divorce.”
