9781608324200: Raising the Kid You Love With the Ex You Hate

Powerful advice for you and your ex-spouse on how to reduce conflict and protect your children's well-being while co-parenting

You and your former wife/husband are struggling to be civil to each other and you recognize the conflicts could be damaging to your child. Dr. Farber, a clinical child psychologist who's been in practice for 30+ years, knows what you're up against. He writes compassionately and insightfully about the concrete, doable steps you can take to avoid letting differences with your ex get in the way of being the best mom or the best dad you can be.

Conflicts inevitably arise from living in two households. You don't have to like your ex, but, if you are going to co-parent successfully, you will still have to deal with your ex. Dr. Farber helps you navigate the upheaval with practical advice based on real-world families. His book shows you how to

- Know what to say, and not to say, to your child about separation and divorce
- Cope with child support and other money issues
- Handle the holidays and special family occasions
- Choose and adjust to new schools
- Introduce your child to a potential new partner
- Co-parent when an ex has a personality disorder, addiction problem, or is a bully
- Decide when to recruit the help of a parent coordinator
- Raise a healthy child while co-parenting

You'll draw strength and encouragement from the positive outcomes he's helped hurting parents and children achieve as they confronted such gripping problem areas. Dr. Farber's expert analysis and counsel will show you how to use co-parenting to turn your broken marriage into a working divorce that supports the emotional and developmental health of your children caught in the crossfire.

About the Author:

Dr. Edward Farber is a licensed clinical psychologist in Virginia and Maryland. He is on the faculty at the George Washington University School of Medicine and is the former chair of psychology at the Ohio State University Pediatrics Department and Columbus Children's Hospital.

Recognizing the need for specialized services for families in transition or conflict, Dr. Farber founded Reston Family Center to provide pre-divorce counseling, custody evaluation, visitation mediation, and parent coordination interventions. Dr. Farber has published professionally, lectured nationally, and received multiple research grants, and has served on several national and local community boards.

Review:

"For all divorced and divorcing parents, Raising the Kid You Love with the Ex You Hate should be required reading.  It is a masterful clinician's simple but profound guide through the minefield of divorce, and is sure to help both the parents and children caught up in this unwelcome and all-too-common drama of modern life." (Norman Rosenthal, M.D., author of Transcendence and Winter Blues)

"If you are divorced, or contemplating divorce, you need this book...Follow Dr. Farber's wise and practical rules and your children will flourish after the breakup, secure in the knowledge that your love for them trumps your disappointments in the marriage."  (Dr. Richard A. Warshak, author of Divorce Poison: How To Protect Your Family From Bad-mouthing and Brainwashing; and Welcome Back, Pluto: Understanding, Preventing, and Overcoming Parental Alienation)

"Dr. Farber's book is a must read for divorcing/divorced parents who want to insure their children's well-being and future adjustment...Using case examples to illustrate the feelings, dilemmas and decisions that divorcing/divorced parents face, Dr. Farber provides practical child-development-enhancing strategies and prescriptions that will guide parents to facilitate their children's emotional sturdiness and well-being over time." (Carol Weissbrod Ph.D.,  Associate Professor of Psychology & Director of Clinical Training at American University, Washington, D.C.)

"Divorce is hard on kids, but what hurts kids even more is nasty conflict between their parents. Based on his extensive experience with children of divorce, clinical psychologist Edward Farber provides an invaluable guide through the mine field of mistakes angry ex-spouses need to avoid in co-parenting after a divorce." (Dianne L. Chambless, Ph.D., Professor & Director of Clinical Psychology Training, University of Pennsylvania)

"Dr. Farber is that "good conscience" we'd all like to have looking over our shoulders. His light touch and solid practical advice for the divorced parent is easy to read and sure to save readers and their children from lots of anxiety and lots of legal bills." (Dan Oren, M.D., Co-author of How to Beat Jet Lag,
