No I wasn't just focusing on that. I used it as an example.

Moreover, the whole point of my post might have been missed.

The members on this forum are part of a specific population that almost by definition are guilty of custody wars.

My point is that (I hope and expect) this community, this forum, is in the minority vs all children of separated parents. And that most children of separated parents are well adjusted because their parents separated amibicably and with little or no conflict.

I think we have to be careful that we are not projecting the relatively sad experiences of our small community onto all children of separated parents.

In other words, while the author has a point when it comes to mal-adjusted kids, those kids (hopefully) are in the vast minority. His book will be useful for them, but not most children.
