It is no secret that divorce can be excruciating for children. Seeing their parents’ marriage end can have negative effects on kids that can last well into their adult years.
Linda Ranson Jacobs is one of the country’s leading experts in the areas of children and divorce and single-parent family needs. In 2004, she created and developed the DivorceCare for Kids program, a biblically based ministry tool designed to help children cope with life post-divorce.
Linda recently spoke with DadsDivorce about the risks children face during and after divorce, how parents can help them through that process and what resources are available through the DivorceCare for Kids program.
