I’ve been a practicing psychologist in an outpatient setting for over thirty-two years. I run into the same issues and problems almost every day (addictions, anxiety, ADHD/learning disabilities, assertiveness, children’s behaviors, mood disorders, relationships and self-esteem). This ebook is another about children; in this case what they experience after their parents separate and/or divorce. Specifically, this shorter ebook deals with the formation of a child's self-esteem in the atmosphere of divorce.
Here's some particulars...
This ebook discusses what not to do after the divorce, or put more positively, what to do to help your child(ren) cope and process this very big life-changing event. This is tied to the development of their self-esteem. This is a time when kid's self-esteem is likely to take a very big hit, unless the parents are very, very careful. This ebook focuses on both the parent and child’s experiences. However, since I am a child psychologist, it presents information to the parents from the child's reference point, which makes the child’s experience better when heeded..
I start by describing the four primary elements of self-esteem, or Powers as I call them. They are: Basic Worth, Competence, Ego Strength and Self-Acceptance. Kids are in the process of forming each of these, starting with the First Power and then building. Kids get the information they need to put together their self-esteem from their family-of-origin, normally, or in the case of divorcing parents, their "families"-of-origin. Depending upon when the divorce occurs, there is an impact to a particular Power, and depending upon the level of conflict, there is an impact to all the Powers.
Next, there is a discussion of what a self-esteem is and how it develops. Kids respond differently at different ages to different levels of stress. Wise parents recognize this and act accordingly. Parents have to understand basic child psychology at different ages and parents have to understand how to treat the "ex's" in ways that interface with their child's self-esteem needs.
Some specific parent behaviors are emphasized, especially the big ones that cause damage if ignored. There are three or four BIG "no-no's" for parents to consider. These ideas are discussed in the context of the Four Powers, but also in the general sense of how parents can deal with their children, now that the parents are no longer together.
Some techniques are discussed that make this whole "life change" much easier. Assertiveness skills and general communication skills are considered (articulation of process, content vs. process communication).
Ebooks are replacing standard books because they are easier and quicker to obtain. There is a need for immediate information, reasonably priced. I've written a number of such ebooks, each covering a specific subject from a "how to" or "do-it-yourself" perspective. Each of the ebooks on this website is pithy, to the point and has no fat. Think of them as Cliff's Notes in modern form, each dealing with some condition I see in the office every day.
The prices for each ebook are nominal. Ebooks are normally between 25 the 50 pages, and are easily downloadable. This makes them nearly instanteous to obtain. This is also the case with this ebook, only this ebook is just 8 pages long and is offered at a reduced price. It is hoped that this ebook will also be an introduction to this author's other ebooks, which are available on other pages on this site (see Navigation or "Menu" panel on the upper left section of each webpage).
