New disorder list out: APA says no to "parental alienation"

In the coming publication of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders there are some controversial changes being made. The long-debated issue of parental alienation doesn't make the cut, as it is not explicitly defined as a mental disorder, according to the APA's vice chair. It has been said many times before that children of divorce can go through an emotional time when dealing with such a trauma, and that the interactions they have with their parents throughout can profoundly help or hinder the healing process.

Ways to stay connected to the kids when school starts

When kids see "back to school" signs at the store, some can't wait to get their hands on fresh pencils and Trapper Keepers, while others might get a sinking feeling in their gut.

How do you know when kids are struggling after a divorce?

Divorce can be an emotional process for all involved. While each spouse may be struggling with lifestyle changes, it's important not to forget about the kids. A divorce may be somewhat traumatizing to them, so it's important to watch out for signs that they are not doing well.

Some divorcing parents aim to ease the pain for children

Divorce is at its lowest rate since 1970. However, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, over a million children in the U.S. in 2009 lived with a parent who had divorced the previous year. In essence, divorce in the family is still not uncommon for children to see firsthand.
