Archie: My parents have separated: an 8 year old's perspective
Dr Rhonda Emonson PhD (Author)
Heather Emonson (Illustrator)
Eight-year-old Archie's parents have decided to end their relationship. Archie finds himself navigating new situations around the changes to his life and routine, the changes in the family dynamic, and the obstacles to finding support among his friends and peers at school.
Archie is a child's perspective of parental separation and can be read alone, or paired with Charlotte, which takes the view of Archie's older sister. These books are designed to be read to any child facing unfamiliar and uncertain family circumstances resulting from the end of a parental relationship.
As a Mediator, Coach and Counsellor, Dr Rhonda Emonson PhD has worked extensively in community and private settings with those experiencing disputes, disagreement and difficult relationships. Rhonda was the first Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner in Australia to complete research at a PhD level on the effective preparation of parents for mediation. During the time of her research, she developed 'The Bird Family Cards'. Charlotte and Archie are an extension of these cards.
