The title of this episode is also the title of our guest's book. In The D-Word: Divorce Through a Child's Eyes, writer Tara Eisenhard gives us a kid’s-eye view of divorce, from what it feels like to be told about the divorce to how a parent’s struggle to process and move forward directly impacts the child. In this episode, Eisenhard, who is divorced and who is the daughter of cooperatively divorced parents, will talk with us about ways parents and others can help children navigate their post-divorce lives by better understanding divorce from a child’s perspective. (Note: This episode airs Sunday at 9:30 PM EST; the promo page shows 10:30 PM to allow for this weekend's time change).
Intended to inform and inspire, The D-Word is an honest, firsthand look at divorce and its ramifications. Parents, grandparents, friends, attorneys and counselors are invited to glimpse 12-year-old Gina's experience and learn how their actions shape reality for children of divorce. Through real-life examples, The D-Word addresses issues such as conflict, communication, alienation, attitudes and, ultimately, moving on.
It's good to talk.
