Families are a complex and ever-changing thing. Although it is a myth that half of all marriages still end in divorce, according to The New York Times in 2014, there is no doubt that it does happen. Often, kids blame themselves. Younger children may begin acting sad and throwing tantrums, while older children may be angry or distant. Books for kids about divorce help them understand and process these emotions.
As a mom who has struggled with marital problems recently, I know how scary it can be. My husband and I even separated for a time last year. If your family is changing, these books for kids about divorce may be helpful.
I’ve included recommendations by age group, so feel free to jump to the section that applies to your kids’ age(s).
