Inside Family Law with Zoë Durand

A discussion with Rachel Brace from Relationspace about Max’s Divorce Earthquake

November 8, 2019
  • History of Rachel Brace’s career
  • Reason for creating Max’s Divorce Earthquake
  • How this book helps normalise the separation and helps children verbalise their feelings about their parents’ separation and encourage conversation between children and parents about the separation.
  • How Max’s  Divorce Earthquake can also help parents – helping parents to support their children.
  • There is no right or wrong way to feel. There are no “bad” or shameful feelings. Feelings will pass. Feelings and emotions are temporary states, not permanent traits.
  • Having mixed feelings about divorce.
  • Tips for parents who are separating.
  • Really listen to children – even if it is difficult to hear what they are saying.
  • Try not to project your own feelings onto children.
  • Children have their own unique self and personhood. Zoe refers to “your children come through you, but are not of you” from Kahil Gibran
  • Upcoming project: a book on blended families and having step parents and steps siblings.
