Thanks to Liana Lowenstein for taking the time to read The D-Word and share her thoughts…
The D-Word provides an in-depth look at divorce from the perspective of a 12-year-old girl. It covers important issues such as family changes, parental conflict, and alienation. The book conveys a hopeful message that families can overcome the challenges of divorce. A highly recommended resource for families coping with divorce, as well as for mental health professionals.

Big thanks to Rosalind Sedacca for taking the time to read and review The D-Word: Divorce Through a Child’s Eyes. Rosalind is the author of How Do I Tell the Kids About the Divorce. She is the is the founder of The Child-Centered Divorce Network and International Child-Centered Divorce Month (happening right now). I am honored by her words of praise…
“The D-Word is a beautifully evolving book that gives divorcing and divorced parents insights into how dramatically their actions, conversations and decisions impact their innocent children. Divorce is a highly complex and emotionally-jarring experience for any child. When parents aren’t focused on their children’s needs during and after the divorce, when they aren’t aware of the consequences of every choice they make regarding their children, and when they can’t put themselves in their children’s shoes to experience divorce from the consciousness of a 5, 10 or 15 year old, they are unwittingly setting themselves and their children up for needless pain and sorrow.
Author Tara Eisenhard brings these points across in her simple diary of a 12 year old in a profound way — without lecturing, pontificating or judging. Parents who read this book “get” the message of divorce through a child’s eyes and hopefully can stop, think and re-examine every choice they’ve made and its effect on their children. As Founder of the Child-Centered Divorce Network I highly recommend this book to every parent contemplating divorce as well as to divorce attorneys, mediators, therapists, coaches and other professionals who deal with this difficult transition for families. The book ends with promise. Eisenhard offers hope and a thoughtful perspective about how parents can move through divorce harmoniously with a win-win outcome — both for parents as well as the children they love.”
