Before I start, I would like to inform everyone that in my country, the Philippines, we don’t have any divorce law here but it doesn’t change the fact that families are splitting through personal decisions, annulment or even by legal separation. Children are always affected thus making us wonder how we could make things better for them.
Aside from that, I am not an avid fan of broken families but as for my personal experience, I am now currently separated and am planning to file an annulment in the near future. This made me want to know how I can help my children cope up with the idea of having their parents separated. Therefore, I was interested to review the product for personal reasons.
For your information, this documentary film, Children and Divorce: Children Teaching Children About Divorce can be purchased at the professorchild.com for only $34.99 which includes a companion workbook available for free download. The workbook contains 30 pages of exercises that match up with the film.
Now the question is… Is it worth the buy? Below is my personal review on the said film:
This documentary film showcases eight children on their thoughts on divorce, how it affected them and how much it changed their lives. These children shared their own divorce stories and even what their hopes are for the future now that their parents are separated.
From these divorce stories of children who went through it, personally, I have learned a lot from them. It let me see how divorce or separation of parents can affect them and if they can really cope up. It made me understand the negative and positive impact it can have on your children and how you can help them understand. It can help you avoid ways on how to act in front of your children as divorce is being talked about and how it will affect them after.
So, would it be worth it? Personally, YES!! I highly recommend this documentary film. It can really help you a lot on how to deal with your children if you are facing divorce anytime soon. I suggest you watch this film before telling your children. It can give you a lot of ideas.
Of course, I am not suggesting for parents to pursue divorce since I still believe that marriage is sacred. As much as possible, save the marriage but if it can’t be helped especially for valid or reasonable causes, this might be one of the tools you might need before plunging into the world of divorce or separation.
