"A Parent's Guide to Divorce is such an amazing resource for parents who are going through or about to go through a divorce. Having been through a divorce 11 years ago with two young children, I would have LOVED a book like this. Karen's book offers practical strategies to plan ahead for the most important aspects of divorcing and co-parenting and provides a realness and understanding of the emotions because she has been through this herself. That is who you want to learn from. I highly recommend this book to any parents co-parenting or about to co-parent. Your children didn't choose this and still deserve a happy childhood, and you can make that happen. This book will help!"--Julie Ciardi, host of the Divorced Mommy Podcast
