  1. Review by che for Mom’s House, Dad’s House for Kids: Feeling at Home in One Home or Two Rating: Dr. Ricci sets a high bar when it comes to solid advice and a deep unnsretadding of the dynamics of families in this stressful situation. It doesn’t matter if you initiated the divorce or are just doing what you have to in order to get through. Mom’s House, Dad’s House will help you as much as it will help your children. Read it before you give it to your children. This book can give you strategies for addressing and resolving the most common problems. You will have answers ready when your children are ready to talk. If a child’s first questions are answered fully and without rancor they will come back for more help. This really is a must-read for kids.
