ICCD Month Provides Free Gifts To Parents Coping with Divorce Issues Throughout January

In recognition of International Child-Centered Divorce Month, divorce experts around the world will be providing free e-books, coaching services, teleseminars and other gifts to divorced parents throughout January. ICCD Month is dedicated to alerting parents about the effects of divorce on children and teaching them how to prevent emotional and psychological damage to children during and after a divorce.

The featured sponsor of ICCD is Our Family Wizard, a website designed to help manage shared parenting online.

Divorce attorneys, mediators, therapists, financial planners, coaches and other professionals on four continents will be participating. Their purpose is to promote peaceful divorce, cooperative co-parenting, and educating parents about how to prevent negative consequences for children affected by separation or divorce.

I am thrilled that divorce professionals around the world will be joining us to bring a heightened awareness to parents about their responsibility to their children's well-being before, during and after divorce. Our purpose is education and mistake prevention. We want to encourage mediation instead of damaging litigation, respectful co-parenting, effective communication skills and guide parents away from common mistakes that scar children, even into their teens.

We can never overemphasize how parental decisions about divorce can affect and scar children for years, and often for a lifetime. Our resounding message to divorcing parents is: Regardless of your own emotional state, it is essential to put your children's needs first when making decisions related to divorce or separation! Often that means letting go of anger and resentment in favor of co-operative co-parenting so your children aren't robbed of their childhood.

The Child-Centered Divorce Network has created a special website where parents can access all the valuable gifts by simply clicking links. The website will be available throughout January at divorcedparentsupport.com/ebook.

In addition, parents can find listings of free expert interviews, teleseminars, webinars and other special events being held during January on the Events Calendar at the same website.

Sincere best wishes for a happy and harmonious New Year!
