My parents are divided ... and me?

My parents split up ... and me?

Live a separation happily.

It is perhaps a wish of anyone who faces this difficult event in life.

This book offers a recipe of certain success based on the latest legal and psychological perspectives.

In its pages it provides parents who wish to protect their children from the possible effects of separation, divorce and coexistence of information, advice and practical tools to end the couple's life in the best way.

Each chapter of this book is easy to read but is extremely up-to-date and effective thanks to the experience of the authors; the most complex topics and the most important issues for minors in these situations are dealt with. The goal is to offer readers attentive to the subject for general interest or specific reasons, tools to understand and deal with what happens in a perspective of normality, also considering the fact that separation is a very common event in today's society.

The book is also a useful tool for psychologists, social workers and trainers to address the issues of separation, divorce and division in unmarried couples.
