the judges had to say:
"Divorce itself is tough on children, but constant, often
bitter conflict that persists after the divorce makes it even
tougher. Divorced or divorcing parents will find the workbook
and video vignettes openly address likely areas of conflict and
offer possible solutions that keep parents centered on what they
can both agree on: the happiness and well-being of their child.
Open communication and genuine respect, even amidst understandable
differences, ground the conflict-resolving strategies."
