An internationally renowned authority on children and divorce reveals the latest research-based strategies for helping children survive and thrive before, during, and long after their parents divorce. The breakup of a family can have an enduring impact on children. But as Dr. JoAnne Pedro-Carroll explains with clarity and compassion in this powerful book, parents can positively alter the immediate and long-term effects of divorce on their children. The key is proven, emotionally intelligent parenting strategies that promote children's emotional health, resilience, and ability to lead satisfying lives. Over the past three decades, Pedro-Carroll has worked with families in transition, conducted research, and developed and directed award- winning, court-endorsed programs that have helped thousands of families navigate divorce and its aftermath. Now she shares practical, research- based advice that helps parents: • gain a deeper understanding of what their children are experiencing • develop emotionally intelligent parenting strategies with the critical combination of boundless love and appropriate limits on behavior • reduce conflict with a former spouse and protect children from conflict's damaging effects • learn what recent brain research reveals about stress and children's developing capabilities Putting Children First delivers a positive vision for a future of hope and healing.
