When Grandparents Divorce by Katie Saint

This is a very well written book to help children get through the process of  their Grandparents' divorce.  When they were use to the way things were and then changes happen.  The author has provided parents a guide to help say and do things to ease the tension and confusion children may have.   The book will help your child share his/her feelings and understand that no matter what happens they are still loved by both parents and grandparents. 

Katie Saint is a therapist, but this book came around because she is a mother of a two little boys whose grandparents (her parents) were getting divorced. She realized with all of their questions, other families must have the same concerns.

Professionally, she works with clients at many stages in life: relational problems; transitioning through divorce; working through ADHD, PTSD, anxiety and depression; grieving a loved one; and other life stressors. Katie focuses on helping clients recognize and build on their own strengths to meet their personal goals.

Katie Saint graduated from Lakeland College with a Master's Degree in Counseling, and is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. She specializes in extreme behavioral problems. She provides individual, couple, pre-marital, and family counseling to children, adolescents and adults. Katie has over 4000 hours working with adults, children and adolescents on the Autism Spectrum. She also offers an emotional control program for adolescents and adults struggling with impulsive behavior or emotional regulation. Katie utilizes a variety of therapeutic techniques including the combination of behavioral, cognitive and psychoanalytic tools.

When parents divorce, it's one thing, but watching grandparents divorce must be something completely different. This is probably a much needed book in today's world.
