Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Recommended This book had some good points and good suggestions, but it did not cover what I was looking for. It is more oriented to families with school-aged kids (not toddler or adult children). The author seems to touch on issues, but not really explain why the issues exist (other than saying the child is overwhelmed by the separation) or how to resolve the issue.
