Family Breakdown: Helping Children Hang on to Both Their Parents has attracted widespread media coverage elsewhere.

Extracts are in the Daily Mail here and here. There is also a feature in the Guardian here.

Written by MPG director Penelope Leach, the world-renowned child development expert, the book explains to parents – and everyone else involved, from judges and lawyers to friends and family members – what they can and must do to ensure that children come through separation with the minimum of emotional damage and pain.

All proceeds of the book – once publishing expenses have been met – are, thanks to Penelope’s generosity, going to MPG so that it can achieve its ambitious aims.

Justine Roberts, CEO of Mumsnet, says: “With typical insight and without passing judgment, Penelope Leach addresses a subject that is, for many, an inescapable aspect of modern parenting. Separation may be unavoidable, but separating badly does not have to be: Leach shows us how to go about it in the best possible way, for children-and adults”.
