Episode Description for “Daughters of Divorce“
Statistics show that over 40% of Americans are children of divorce, and women with divorced parents are more than twice as likely than men to get divorced themselves and struggle in romantic relationships. In Terry Gaspard’s book, “Daughters of Divorce,” she helps restore your faith in love and build healthy, successful relationships. Interviewing daughters of divorce and drawing on over 30 years of experience, Terry helps you recognize and overcome the unique emotional issues that parental separation creates so you can build the happy, long-lasting relationships you deserve.
“…the authors’ solid and empathetic advice is applicable to anyone who has suffered childhood traumas affecting his or her ability to trust in the power of love.” — Publishers Weekly
Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
As a daughter of divorce, I found the information in this book accurate. We don’t realize the impact of our childhood on our relationships as we get older, and this book helped me to see patterns that I wasn’t aware of. This is an important topic that I wish was discussed more.
