About the Program


SPLIT offers an opportunity for you and your children to hear from twelve kids who have been through divorce and survived. The kids in SPLIT are wise and funny, and they tell it like it is.

Chances are, your children will relate to much of what the SPLIT kids share about their experiences of divorce. Kids listen to other kids in a different way than they listen to the adults in their lives. It also comforts kids to see their many feelings, fears, and surprises mirrored by other kids.

Split, Not Broken provides access to the Split film, the chapter-by-chapter comprehension workbook, a chapter-by-chapter comprehension quiz, along with exercises designed to help you talk with your kids and set up a framework for continuing engagement and open communication.

Each section is defined by a single theme to help you focus on that topic for yourself and with your kids. Once you’ve completed the program, you’ll be provided with a certificate of completion and a pdf of the completed work which can be saved for reference and/or used as a reference for your separation/divorce.

... beautiful, touching, and such a valuable tool for teaching professionals about the impact of divorce. It demonstrates the importance of couples working together to "SPLIT" with sensitivity to the needs of their children. It is a gift!

This program will…

  • walk you through each “scene” in the film.
  • give you helpful information on what to expect from kids as they face each stage of the divorce.

Split is both a mirror for children whose parents have divorced and a window for those whose parents have not, but who (inevitably) know kids whose have.

We watched it with our ten-year-old who gained deeper compassion and insight into what some of her friends are going through. The children featured in the film were sincere, real, honest, relatable--I'd love to see it shown in schools as part of life skills classes.

You May Be Wondering


SPLIT offers your kids a hopeful message. Hearing the open and heartfelt stories of twelve children may encourage your kids to share their thoughts and feelings about divorce. The film also reminds kids that they are not alone.

Kids have lots of thoughts and feelings about divorce, but many don’t how to express them. This is often true of parents as well. SPLIT serves as a great jumping-off point to start these important conversations with your kids.

Kids usually feel sad when parents split up, and that’s normal. But they don’t always share their feelings with parents. Some kids may not feel comfortable showing how sad they are, while other kids may worry about how their feelings will affect Mom or Dad.

When kids can talk openly about the sadness they feel, it helps them feel less alone and anxious. Watching this film with your children is an opportunity to help your kids share how they feel by starting the conversation focused on the kids in the film, not themselves.

You don’t have to have all the answers. It’s okay to tell kids you don’t have everything figured out yet, or that you need time to think about their questions before you answer them. Let the kids know that once you have details worked out, you will get back to them. Be sure not to keep kids waiting too long for an answer (maybe a couple of days but not weeks or months!).

You are in control of the conversation with your children. If some parts of your situation are too tender, or you feel there are things your children are not ready to hear, decide ahead of time what you will discuss with them and what will stay private.

Your children still may have questions. Allow them to be curious. But there is certain information your kids need to be shielded from, such as interpersonal problems in the marriage, child support, finances, and legal matters. You can say, “I understand that you really want to know that, thank you for asking. But there are some things that need to be kept between grown-ups.”
