Parenting Expert Sue Atkins releases Fink conversation cards as part of her ‘Divorce without Damage’ campaign
DCD Publishing is delighted to announce the release of Parenting Expert Sue Atkins’ Talking to Children About Divorce Fink conversation cards in March 2015.
The complete pack contains 48 conversation starter cards to help and encourage families going through divorce to explore and express their feelings openly, in order to reduce the negative impact of parental break-ups on children.
Written by Sue, the Fink cards are aimed at use by parents, teachers and child-care professionals and are part of a wider Divorce without Damage campaign launched by Sue to help parents and families going through a difficult time by focusing on keeping the communication channels open. Other products in the range include CDs, podcasts and workshops.
Sue today said ‘I am on a mission to firmly put children at the centre of the divorce process, helping separating or separated parents to work together in their child’s best interests. So many parents are like rabbits caught in the headlights where their own stress, panic and denial means that they forget the massive impact their decisions are going to have on their children – unintentionally of course. My Talking to Children About Divorce cards are a simple and effective way to make sure children feel supported, heard and understood at this stressful time.’
The cards give parents clarity, direction and confidence around the emotional and practical aspects of managing their divorce. They can explore in their own time, at their own speed and at their child’s pace, the many emotions that they may encounter during such a time. For teachers, therapists and childcare professionals, the cards can be used with individuals or small groups. In addition to the powerful questions cards, the pack also contains notes and tips about talking to children about divorce.
Through her products, teachings and blogs Sue offers practical guidance for bringing up happy, confident, resilient children from toddler to teen, using her personal experiences as a parent to inform her advice and guidance.
Sue continued ‘I work with lots of families who are struggling to find the emotional support they need while they are unpicking the enormous complicated knots of the financial, legal and emotional impact of what deciding to divorce brings. The reason why I know so well how stressful the whole thing is because I have gone through this highly stressful experience myself so I know 1st-hand how challenging and frightening it is.’
