International divorce coach and parent educator Christina McGhee is a self-proclaimed "information junkie." Passionate about getting the best information into the right hands at the right time, Christina believes essential information and support are crucial for families in transition. From her perspective, knowing what to expect and having access to support are often the defining difference between children surviving or thriving when parents part. Her relentless desire to radically change how children experience divorce is also the driving force behind her latest book, Parenting Apart: How Separated and Divorced Parents can Raise Happy and Secure Kids.

Christina has dedicated her career to speaking on behalf of children of divorce by training both parents and professionals around the world. Determined to make information more accessible to separating families, she has also created practical and relevant resources including the award winning children's DVD program Lemons 2 Lemonade: How to handle life when things go sour between Mom and Dad and the parenting booklet Separate Yet Successful: Restructuring family life when parents part. Parents can also find timely tips and information on her website and blog at www.divorceandchildren.com.
