The Splits

How to help your kids navigate separation and divorce
Kids know stuff. Sometimes they know more stuff than we realise. They listen, they watch, they are sponges. When a family separates, the kids are involved whether they like it or not. But how much involvement is too much? And where do you draw the line between explaining what is going on and oversharing? The Splits is not just a book about the important conversations you need to have with your kids about separation but also the conversations that should be left out. The Splits is a guide for parents who care about how separation will affect their children and need help to navigate the necessary conversations with their kids about all aspects of separation, divorce and what happens if it goes to family court. This book will give parents the confidence to support their kids by learning about what conversations they should be having with them and what conversations should be left out.
Bron O’Loan is a family lawyer, a mum to three hungry, and often moody, teenagers, an avid writer and an ardent advocate of supporting domestic and family violence victims. Before entering law, Bron was a primary school teacher and wrote a Masters Degree course for teachers, was a lecturer at Charles Sturt University and had her own online retail store. In 2012 she commenced her journey into law and held fast to her view that empathy is the key and hugging clients is often required. She obtained a Masters in Family Law and founded O’Loan Family Law. Known for her ability to inspire, energise and collaborate, the lightbulb switched on for Bron to share those traits in her passion project, The Splits.
