Kids talk about their parents’ divorce on SBS Insight: compelling viewing

The Insight program on SBS has just run a story on kids commenting on their parents’ divorces. I saw it online. It is compelling viewing- essential, in my view for any parent going through separation and divorce, and likewise for any teen having the trauma of their parents splitting up.
