Welcome to the Kids Corner! This section
of our website is dedicated to kids of all ages whose parents
are in the process of separating and divorcing, or whose
parents have separated and divorced in the past. It’s
a place where you can hear the thoughts
of other kids who have been in a situation similar to your
own. We hope it’s helpful to know that
you’re not alone in how you feel, and that the thoughts
of other kids will be reassuring to you.
Some of the thoughts
about parents’ separation and
divorce are shared through kids’ artwork,
all of which was done by children and adolescents who have
participated in our support groups at the Kids First Center.
Child’s Story was written by a young girl in
Portland, Maine, named Olivia. She has done a wonderful
job of describing her experiences
throughout her parents’ divorce. We’d like to
give Olivia special thanks for letting us include her story
on our website and hope you especially enjoy it.
If you’re interested in more reading,
recommended several books about
separation and divorce from the child’s perspective.
If you have other books to recommend, or thoughts that
you’d like to
share, please send us an e-mail.
We’d love to hear from you!
