Parents' juvenile behavior can worsen
pain of divorce
When adults manage to behave like adults, then children can manage to enjoy being children-even during divorce. That's the opinion Philip M. Stahl, Ph.D. puts forward in his new book, "Parenting After Divorce." The Dublin psychologist and specialist in high-conflict divorce maintains that the parents' divorce itself is not so much a problem for children as the separation and conflict that often follow. With this in mind, Stahl maintains that the children's well-being is contingent upon parents' ability to prioritize the needs of their kids, control their own anger and, perhaps most importantly, communicate with both the children and one another. His book is a sort of "how-to" guide to accomplish this.
