Description
More than half of all recent marriages end in divorce, and one and a half million children are affected by divorce. For many teenagers, divorce is a part of daily life. The Divorce Resource Series offers information and advice for teens whose parents are divorcing or have gotten divorced. When a family separates, teens experience myriad emotions, including anger, fear, sadness, and guilt. The Divorce Resource Series provides useful and necessary information on matters such as family court, custody, finances, and blended families. It also gives teens the tools to cope with difficult emotions, to make positive decisions, and to build healthy relationships.

Blended families form when a parent remarries, either after a divorce or the death of a spouse. Seventy-five percent of divorced people remarry, making it fairly likely that a teen will live in a blended family. Still, when a teen finds out that a parent is remarrying, he or she may feel confused and alone. This book helps readers anticipate and cope with,the issues that come up following a remarriage, especially when relating to stepparents and stepsiblings.
