One of the most, if not the most, important concerns when facing separation and/or divorce is ensuring the emotional and mental health and well-being of the children. Below are books I've found that help parents better relate to their children during divorce and better communicate to their children about the divorce. When both parents can truly put the childrens' interests first, things begin to fall into place, the divorce process becomes less destructive for all parties involved, and every one can look forward to moving on to happier futures.
