book recommendation: Putting Children First

Yesterday, my mother and I attended a book reading at the Pittsford Barnes & Nobel, by one of our friends, Dr. JoAnne Pedro Carroll. She is an award-winning clinical psychologist who helps families survive and thrive times of big transition in their lives, such as separation and divorce –especially where it relates to how the children are affected.
Her new book, "Putting Children First: Proven Parenting Strategies for Helping Children Thrive Through Divorce" provides sound advice based on an abundance of research and the wisdom acquired through three decades of research and clinical experience with thousands of children—all offered with clarity and genuine compassion.

The reading/ lecture was incredibly insightful and moving for me and I belatedly realized that I should have posted this on my Face in advance of the talk so that others could have benefited from the information and had a chance to buy the book or talk to JoAnne and ask questions.

If you know someone who might benefit from the information in this book, please do direct them to JoAnne’s website so they can take a look at the information, and to Amazon for those interested in purchasing. This is also an excellent resource for families that are not separating but have internal turmoil that needs addressing.
