Putting Kids First in Divorce takes a compassionate look at putting children first during a divorce, as well as sharing the benefits of pursuing a collaborative or mediated divorce. With her chapter titled, “For Kids, What Divorce Breaks Apart, Strong Co-Parenting Rebuilds,” Bonnell provides strategies for co-parenting, collaboration, effective communication and conflict management.
Karen Bonnell has over 25 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families facing transition, loss, stress and change. Karen is also the author of the Amazon No. 1 best-selling book “The Co-Parents’ Handbook: Raising Well-Adjusted, Resilient and Resourceful Kids in a Two-Home Family from Little Ones to Young Adults”, and more recently,“The Parenting Plan Handbook: A Four-Part Video Guide to Building a Strong, Child-Centered Parenting Plan.”
According to Bonnell, “Separation or divorce is the end of an intimate partnership for adults, not the end of a family for children.”
Karen passionately advocates for collaboration and mediation in divorce. Karen’s mission — help parents navigate co-parenting with compassion — aligns with the mission of Putting Kids First in Divorce. According to Karen, “I was delighted to be a contributor to this book as I feel it is critical for divorcing couples to consider alternative options to traditional litigated divorce — which too often tears families apart and damages children. Anyone who reads this book will walk away with a whole new perspective on their divorce, and hopefully, empower parents to approach divorce with compassion, sensitivity and a focus on children.”
Bonnell is available for book signings, as well as speaking engagements on the topic of co-parenting. For more information about Karen Bonnell, visit Coach Mediate Consult.
