The Handover Book – a unique and simple communication book for separated families.

Children can find the conflict between their separated parents very distressing.  Ashley Palmer and Leigh Moriarty have designed The Handover Book so that the likelihood of disagreements between parents, now that they are not living together, will be much less likely.  

Using this book helps both parents to always be aware of what is happening in their busy children’s lives as they go from one household to another. It’s a way of communicating the important things, whilst keeping the parental relationship friendly and calm.

There is a section in this book for the children to fill out and both parents are encouraged to help them with it. This will make it easier for the children to share their experiences, achievements and also any worries that they might have.

This journal is designed to help children express, explore and understand some of the strong emotions that they may be feeling and to help them process the divorce for themselves.

A divorce or separation can be a difficult time for everyone, including your children and other family members. Although you are no longer together, you are still parents and it’s vital that you put aside your differences and focus on raising your children to be happy, confident & resilient, together, despite living apart.
