Divorce in the family is affecting more and more families in Poland and all over the world. Many researchers point out the existence of long-term effects of the divorce extending beyond the individual dimension. A divorce in the family brings a lot of dangers for all family members, and in particular for children. They are usually the innocent victims of the divorce of their parents. Granting help and assistance to them in such a time difficult for them is an extremely important element of the return to the practical balance. In my research I am interested in the problems of everyday life encountered by parents during and after the divorce. How can parents help their children during the divorce, and after the event? Do they take the help of a specialist? And what do they expect from it? In the presented text I will try to answer the above questions.
