She also remains a strong advocate of the voiceless victims of divorce; the children.

Raising Emotional Children
For children, divorce can result in either emotional blockages or an outpouring of emotions that may often feel overwhelming and challenging for parents and children alike. 

In many instances, parents believe their role is to help their children “push through” their emotions, rather than encourage them to take the time to work through their complicated feelings. 

Whatever emotional reaction a child of divorce experiences, parents need to understand that their role is to to support, nurture, encourage, and help their children process those emotions. 

Helen Fried discusses how to raise an emotional child, as well as why emotions in children are natural and something to be encouraged after a child experiences a major trauma such as the divorce of his or her parents.
