If you’re a parent facing separation or divorce …
Don’t make your children pay the price for your divorce!
Learn the mistakes to avoid –
before you make them –
for the sake of your kids!
You’re facing the most difficult conversation you may ever have.
And you want to get it “right.”
You don’t want to hurt your children.
And there’s so much at stake.
My name is Rosalind Sedacca. I’ve been where you are now – and I understand how you feel. Anxious, worried … maybe even terrified at the prospect of talking to your kids about the changes ahead.
That’s why I wrote my internationally acclaimed ebook,
HOW DO I TELL THE KIDS ABOUT THE DIVORCE?
… a Create-a-Storybook GuideTo Preparing Your Children – with Love!
Endorsed by therapists, attorneys, mediators, coaches, educators and other divorce professionals world-wide.
At a time when it’s hard to feel positive, I can show you how to create the most positive outcome to this tough situation – for the sake of the children you love.
Let me help you.
I never thought my marriage would end in divorce. I’m sure you didn’t either.
But mine did end more than a decade ago. And now it’s happening to you.
Whether you’re getting divorced or separated, it’s a challenging time. For you, your spouse, and especially for your innocent children.
I know … because I went through it too.
I struggled with the anger, the hurt, the gut-wrenching fear, as well as the anxiety and guilt. What’s worse, I struggled with the burning question that kept me up for weeks:
How do I tell the kids?
Are you facing the same dilemma?
Are you wondering …
- when to break the news to your kids?
- just how you’re going to tell them?
- whether to do it alone or with your spouse?
And most important of all – are you unsure about …
- what you should say?
I’ve been there. And I stayed up for many sleepless nights trying to figure out the best way to break the news. Ultimately I came up with an innovative, yet simple new approach that was very successful for me and the hundreds of other families that have been using it since I launched my book.
I am excited to share this approach with you. And I want to remind you that you’re not alone.
There are answers to your questions. There’s also a simple way to tell your children in a manner that eases their pain, reassures them of your love and helps them get through the transition that lies ahead. Best of all …
doesn’t just tell you what to say. It says it for you!
Let’s face it, telling your children about the divorce may be the most difficult conversation you’ll ever have. Why leave it to chance?
I wrote this guidebook so you don’t have to worry, spend sleepless nights or beat yourself up about making a mistake … saying the wrong things … falling apart … or not having answers to your children’s immediate questions.
I know there are many books about children and divorce. What makes this one unique? My innovative Create-a-Storybook™ concept. I’ve prepared for you an actual template – the word-for-word text that tells you just what you need to say – in age-appropriate language for children 5 to 10 or 10 to 15. And then I guide you, step-by-step, in preparing an attractive personal family storybook, in a photo-album format, that your children will want to read.
In other words, I don’t just tell you what to say – I actually say it for you – with love and compassion! I also include the six key messages your children continuously need to hear, understand and accept at this crucial time. Even if you don’t purchase my guidebook, you need to make sure you share these essential messages with your kids again and again so that they never forget:
- You are, and always will be, loved my Mom and Dad.
- You are, and will continue to be, safe.
- You are not to blame for any of this.
- Mom and Dad will still always be your Mom and Dad.
- This is about change, not about blame.
- Everything is going to be okay.
No other book anywhere shows you how to create a customized storybook uniquely about your family … your children … and your divorce!
The benefits for both you and your children are immeasurable.
After reading this Guidebook …
You will feel…
- confident about how to begin, end, and know just what to say all the way through the “divorce” conversation
- prepared to share with your children the six essential concepts they need to understand and accept
- aware of what your children may be thinking and feeling so you can respond accordingly
- secure, as a role-model for your children, on how to handle disagreements and discord with dignity, integrity and respect
- proud, for the sake of your children, that you took the high road as you venture into your separation or divorce
- empowered about conveying your message with understanding, compassion and love
- confident you’re giving your family the best possible foundation for a healthy and harmonious future, despite your divorce
- capable of creating and maintaining a Child-Centered divorce
- ready to tell your kids about the divorce – because you will be!
You will know …
- how to avoid anxiety, awkwardness and stumbling for just the right words
- you have a text you can refer back to so that you stay on track – even when emotions run high
- how to communicate in the language your children (between the ages of 5 and 15) will understand – and appreciate

- you are giving your children a wonderful storybook about them and their family that they will want to read over and over again for reassurance
- how to access resources you can turn to, including: articles, organizations, attorneys and therapists, to give you additional support in the coming months
Your kids will …

- discover that change, while frightening and difficult, is inevitable and can turn out okay

The template, storybook strategy sends sensitive, kind, loving and safe messages, which every child needs as they prepare for the scary unknown.

35-year therapist, Beverly Gibel says …
“Rosalind Sedacca has made a monumental contribution to self-help resources in an area that affects the lives of millions of men, women and children. After 35 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
Noted Celebrity Divorce Attorney Raoul Felder says …
“How Do I Tell the Kids…about the DIVORCE? is unique in that it offers parents an innovative approach to having that difficult and usually dreaded initial conversation with their children and making it as positive and supportive as possible. The fill-in-the-blanks template concept is original and will be an extremely useful tool for families during a difficult time. A parent contemplating a divorce would be well served by reading this valuable book.” —Raoul Felder, Divorce Attorney
45-year divorce attorney Richard Kulerski says …
“Rosalind Sedacca has just improved the lives of countless children. I have practiced divorce law for 45 years and will attest to the importance of how children are introduced to their parents’ divorce. How Do I Tell the Kids about the Divorce? gives us something simple and sound to rely upon. There is absolutely no downside to Rosalind’s storybook concept. 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.” —J. Richard Kulerski, Esq

Psychotherapist and author, Dr. Paul Wanio says …
“Rosalind Sedacca has put together a vital tool in helping children (and families) through one of the most difficult times in life. Her book, “How Do I Tell the Kids about the Divorce?” moves beyond a traditional “self-help book” and becomes a real, practical, ongoing part of a child’s life. It accomplishes this by being interactive and involving real participation by the child and other family members. I highly recommend this as more than a book, but a tool to assist children to more successfully navigate the disorientation and maze that is part and parcel of divorce.” —C. Paul Wanio, Ph.D., LMFT, LMHC
Psychotherapist and spiritual counselor Dr. Mathew Anderson says …

As a State Certified Family Mediator and Psychotherapist, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of having such an easy to use tool for a very challenging situation.” —Deri Joy Ronis, Ph.D.,
Success Coach Mari Smith says …
“Rosalind, your book is sheer brilliance! How Do I Tell the Kids… about the DIVORCE? provides a unique opportunity for families struggling through this difficult time to create a tangible, pictorial representation of the good times that could be a keepsake for years, even generations, to come.

And that’s not all. Additional endorsements continue to come in every day as word about this valuable guidebook keeps spreading!
“Rosalind, I am so grateful. We used our storybook yesterday to tell our three young children and I believe it made the experience as smooth as it possibly could be. And I’m glad they have something they can refer to and get the positive messages they’ll need to hear. My daughter even wanted to show it to one of her friends today to explain the “big changes” in our family.”
Thank you so much,
“I want to thank you for this book. The most terrifying and upsetting aspect of separation for me are how to tell my children and how to help them understand and cope as our lives change. Reading your book has helped calm my fears somewhat as it has given me a voice and a place to start. Thank you for that!”
