Comments on our book
"Kids have a lot to say and we have collected a wealth of helpful tips and advice based upon years of kids sharing what they'd like to tell their parents, teachers, counselors, therapists, and their parents' attorneys about what this process of divorce and separation feels like to them. And now we would like to share this message with you."
-Peg Libby, Executive Director Kids First Center of Portland, ME
"Kids First is an honest and practical guide to providing emotional and physical well-being to children whose world is rocked by divorce. This book is preventive medicine for all divorcing parents."
-Christiane Northrup, MD Author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom (Bantam, 2005)
"This book is a gold mine of information for separating parents and for the professionals who serve parents and their children. It will surely help lower inter-parental conflict and make life better for thousands of children affected by this issue."
-Felicity Myers, LCSW
