My Family’s Changing Activity Book for Teens
The “My Family’s Changing Activity Book for Teens” was developed and published by Cafcass (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) in England. “Every year Cafcass helps over 140,000 children and young people who are going through care or adoption proceedings, or whose parents have separated and are unable to agree about future arrangements for their children. Cafcass is the voice of children in the family courts and helps to ensure that children’s welfare is put first during proceedings.”
The book starts by explaining why this is all happening:
There are lots of reasons why some parents split up. Usually it’s because one or both of them is unhappy. They might think they need to be apart to make things better. Your parents may argue and shout, but you must remember it’s not your fault that this is happening. This booklet can help you work out how you are feeling. You might want to show it to your mum or dad, or other adults.
