Read about people who have used and benefited from the cards.
"I am a single mother of three children, ages 6-12. I learned about
Talk About It - Divorce from the counselor I brought my two older children to after my divorce. The counselor had used it with my children and it was a big hit! It had been so difficult to get my children to open up and talk about what was going on inside of them (there was a lot!) I then purchased a set of
Talk About It cards to use at home. My two younger children loved playing
Talk About It every night after dinner. However, my 12-year-old seemed uninterested. One day when I came home after work, I found my 12 year old and two of her best friends, whose parents are also divorced, playing
Talk About It in her bedroom. I thought that was incredible!"
"For the past 15 years I have worked with kids whose parents are separated or divorced. I work with kids in individual and group counseling settings.
Talk About It has been one of the best tools I have found for helping kids open up surrounding the issue of their parents break-up."
"As a social worker I have found this product to be particularly beneficial in keeping children engaged while working through difficult issues."
"My son and daughter in law recently divorced. I have three grandchildren, ages 7, 8 and 11. The children are heartbroken and I spend as much time with them as possible. I know the children are bottling up a lot of their emotions and I am concerned about this. When I found out about these conversation cards for kids, I bought a set for both my son and daughter in law to have at both homes. My grandchildren simply love playing with these cards and they insist on playing them with each parent. I didn't know if I was sticking my nose where it didn't belong, but both my daughter in law and son have thanked me for these. My son said he was grateful to have something so fitting he could use with the children. He knew that talking was important, but he said he never quite knew how to actually start conversations about what the children might be feeling. This product gave him the assistance he needed to reach out to his children, thank you!"
"I wish there had been something like this when I went through my divorce 25 years ago. I was able to find a few books, but certainly nothing like this. My kids were 6, 9 and 14 when I divorced and I just didn't know what to do for them, I was such a mess myself!"
