I was recently advised by an expert that children are always affected by their parents' separation, even where it is completely amicable. How does one deal with this important issue? The latest idea from America is a computer game Earthquake in Zipland "designed to help children of separated or divorced parents cope with their new reality". In the game the child controls the central character 'Moose' "on a metaphorical adventure full of colorful characters and challenging tasks, while dealing indirectly with a number of important issues surrounding divorce and separation; issues such as anger, guilt, loyalty conflicts, the fantasy to reunite the divorced parents and other emotional effects of divorce on children".
I've not played the game (there is a free demo available on the website), but it could be a useful tool to help deal with this serious topic.
