Product description


"Emery's assessment of divorce and its effects on children is spot-on. Parents faced with divorce would do well to bring Emery's book to the table at the next mediation session."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Two Homes, One Childhood provides a crucial road map for understanding children's needs at every stage of development with guidelines for flexible parenting plans that change with the child's needs over time. [A] brilliant, child-centered approach...a must-read for every separating parent and the professionals who work with them."
--Joanne Pedro-Carroll, Ph. D., author of Putting Children First, clinical psychologist, and child specialist

"An invaluable guide and resource for parents working together to raise their children after divorce or separation. [Emery's] advice and insight are sensible, sympathetic, and scientifically sound."
--Elizabeth Scott, Harold R. Medina Professor of Law at Columbia Law School

"I recommend this book to all those who proclaim that their primary concern is the well-being of children of separation and divorce. Dr. Emery provides practical guidance to parents, lawyers, judges, mediators--just call him Coach!"
--Hon. Ann Sundt (ret.)

"Emery is a rare find: an acclaimed divorce scientist and mediator who knows the realities of separated parenting. His advice is educative, reassuring, and motivating, and will go a long way to enabling parents to help their children thrive between two homes."
--Jennifer E. McIntosh, professor of psychology and founder ChildrenBeyondDispute.com

"Robert Emery keeps his eyes and yours, glued on children, while guiding parents through an evidence-based approach to raising children in two homes. I highly recommend this book to parents and their co-parents."
--E. Mark Cummings, Ph. D., Professor and Notre Dame Endowed Chair in Psychology, Director, Family Studies Center

"[Emery] offers a hopeful message aimed at the parental heart and intent on keeping children's needs front and center."
--Marsha Kline Pruett, Ph. D., M.S.L., Maconda Brown O'Connor Professor, Director, Clinical Research Institute, Smith College School for Social Work

"As a juvenile and family court judge. I have admired Robert Emery's work for decades. This book is particularly relevant to separated parents. It is written clearly, and is practical, I plan on encouraging judicial colleagues to read it."
--Judge Leonard Edwards (ret.)

Book Description

Building on his 2004 book The Truth About Children and Divorce and a strong evidence base, including his own research, Emery explains that a parenting plan that lasts a lifetime is one that grows and changes along with children's-and families'-developing needs.
