Your children may not understand what the word divorce means, but they understand how it makes them feel.
Their little worlds are turned upside down.
Percy the Perky Penguin feels the exact same way when he learns that his parents are no longer going to live together. Even though he has lots of friends and does well in school, he suddenly doesn’t feel so perky anymore.
But he explores his concerns about what life will be like, and he learns that talking about his fears helps him work through his feelings.
Change is hard, but he decides to adjust and find his perkiness again.
Percy’s fears and those of other children stuck in the middle of a divorce may sometimes seem trivial to adults, but they’re very real. While you can’t promise them things won’t change, you can work as hard as you can to make sure they’re happy.
It will take listening to them and talking with them—and starting a conversation becomes much easier with Percy’s Imperfectly Perfect Family.
