What week!? – When Parents Get Divorced

Jennie Persson & Elin Lindell

A modern family can be shaped in many various ways and Sweden is one of the countries in the world with the highest divorce rates. But what does it mean for the children when their parents break up and meet new people and maybe even break up again? And all families don’t consist of a mother and a father with kids – how about those families that for example consist of two mothers and a kid? Do you have the right to keep in touch with stepparents after a divorce? What happens if dad moves to another country? And do you have to share a room with your stepsisters or stepbrothers?No questionis too small or too big.Also personal stories and advice from psychiatrists and legal advisors. All from a child’s perspective of course. Illustrated in color.
