Marriage and the family is being destroyed by this modern day phenomena and people do not understand how to resolve this problem in their personal lives
CALGARY, Alberta (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
In his new book “‘Dear Children,’ A Manual for Adult Children of Divorce: 25 Year Study of Spirituality and Overcoming the Effects of Divorce; Healing the World” (published by Balboa Press), author William Hinckley helps readers deal with the issue of having divorced parents.
“‘Dear Children,’ A Manual for Adult Children of Divorce” is designed to help adults who are suffering from being a child of divorce. Hinckley hopes to help these people learn about their inherent dysfunctional characteristics and confront them. He details why adult children of divorce continue to revert to these characteristics and experience failed relationships. Hinckley says “‘Dear Children,’ A Manual for Adult Children of Divorce” explains the real meaning to life, empowering people to experience happiness, fulfillment and healthy relationships.
An excerpt from “‘Dear Children,’ A Manual for Adult Children of Divorce”:
“As a child of divorce, one of the survival techniques my ego developed was to give someone a chance to be in my life, but if they let me down, they could not be trusted again. If they gave me any suspicion that they were going to hurt me in any way, they could not be kept as a friend. In many ways this is why most of the close friendships that I had throughout my teenage and young adult years never lasted. Because I had lost my ability to trust as a child, I did not possess this vitally important characteristic to develop healthy long-lasting relationships.”
Hinckley says that most people today have divorced parents, and he hopes his book offers those people some consolation. “Our society is experiencing 50% – and beyond – divorce rates and relationship failures,” he says. “Marriage and the family is being destroyed by this modern day phenomena and people do not understand how to resolve this problem in their personal lives. ‘‘Dear Children,’ A Manual for Adult Children of Divorce’ will help.”
