Even in the best of circumstances, divorce is painful. Being a good parent during this process can be difficult. I’ve seen even the best parents struggle to provide the support their child needed during this time and have seen too many children scarred by their parents’ divorce.

The good news is that divorce does not have to devastate your child’s life. You can make decisions to help your child survive and thrive after divorce.

If you are willing to put in the work to understand your child’s experience, to learn what you can do to help them through divorce, and put those lessons into action, you can help your child during this difficult time.

You have a choice to make. You can surrender to your own pain and make decisions that could scar your child or you can rise above the pain and make the conscious decision to help them through this process.

The choice is yours.

Tell me:

  • Are you concerned that your divorce will hurt your children?
  • Do you know the proactive way to speak to your kids about divorce that will help them deal with their feelings at any age?
  • Are you prepared to learn the necessary communication tools that will help protect the emotional well-being of your child?

Dear Wise Parent,

My name is Dr. Deanna Conklin-Danao. Over the past 20 years, I’ve witnessed the negative long-term impact that divorce can have on children and families:

  • The sadness, loneliness and confusion of children who are trying to make sense of their parents’ divorce without feeling safe enough to talk about this pain
  • The anger between couples five to ten years later that’s so palpable it still influences every interaction with each other
  • And adult children looking back on the pain of their childhood as a result of choices made by their parents.

All these experiences led me to believe there is a better way to do this. I sought out specialized training in divorce as well as mediation to understand the other options available to families.

I want to put that knowledge and my understanding of child development to work for your family. That’s why I created the Parenting Wisely During Divorce Audio Course.

Unfortunately, I have seen a number of things go wrong for kids when divorce is not handled well:

  • I have seen a teenage girl cutting herself
  • A nine-year-old boy unable to sleep on his own a year after the divorce
  • A three-year-old girl missing preschool constantly due to stomach aches
  • A twelve-year-old boy start drinking
  • And a gifted seven-year-old girl unable to learn in school

You can help your kids weather this transition successfully or get the help they need before any problems they’re experiencing get more serious.

I want to see children’s experience of the changes in their families acknowledged and addressed to improve their ability to cope. I want to see couples make decisions that will affect the rest of their lives from a place of their best self, not from a place of fear or anger.

I believe that when divorce is handled well, the adults can find a path to a better life for themselves and provide the support needed for their children.

Divorce will always be a part of our society, but it doesn’t have to be devastating.

I want to see couples find a constructive way to separate their lives, protect their children and move forward to a better quality of life.

My mission in creating this course is to give parents all the information I would give you if you came to my office, but to do it in a way that recognizes that couples divorcing are spread thin and don’t always have the time and energy to come in for weekly appointments.

I wanted to provide this information in a format that you can access at your convenience. I’ve divided it into discrete easy-to-understand modules that allow you to listen to the information you need when you need it. Each module was developed to stand alone.

I want parents to have concrete, proven tools to use when stressful situations come up so that these situations can be de-escalated and the solutions are constructive.

My other goal is to help you see your own child’s unique experience of this divorce: both what your child brings to the divorce (his/her temperament, coping style, age, strengths, challenges) and what the divorce will bring to your child (the specific changes your child will experience as a result).

By increasing your understanding of your child’s unique experience, you will be able to support him in his feelings and respond to his struggles with empathy.
