These are just links I found while researching for this website which I think can really help you. If you're in a crisis and need immediate help, the first link will help you find the right hotline to call for just about anything, from a suicide hotline to a domestic violence hotline (although in a real emergency always call 911). The Boys Town Suicide and Crisis Line (800-448-3000 or 800-448-1833) is one example of a hotline given there, and you can call it for any crisis if you live in the United States, Canada, or Guam (and no, it's not just for boys). If you live outside of those areas and need help finding a hotline, click on Need More? and contact me with the name of your country and I'll do my best to help you.
As I find new websites, I'll keep adding on to this, so check back!

Links to More Links!
This site offers a lot of links to other resources you may want to check out, including books, websites, and other means of support for kids whose parents are divorcing.
My disclaimer: I do not own and am not affiliated with these websites at all, but I do recommend them. Check them out! :)
These are the websites that I used to help me write this, although most of it really comes from common sense and my own experience. All of the people I acknowledged on the Website page - Cassidy, Justin, Whitney, and everyone else - also contributed to this site, which helped me incorporate several different points of view. I will warn you that I did consult Wikipedia, the bane of teachers worldwide, a few times. Long story short, the information I put in this website should be accurate, but if you want to be 100% sure or need legal or psychological advice, a teenager's website probably isn't the best place to get that. Ask a lawyer or a psychologist for advice instead.
Just to let you know, I do use Google Analytics to monitor anonymous traffic data for this website (key word: anonymous), and it employs a cookie.
In addition to websites, I also used a book which I highly recommend (which is why it's also mentioned elsewhere in the site). It's called Divorce: Young People Caught in the Middle, by Beth Levine. I found it in my local public library, and you can probably find it in your library, too! It's a short book that really covers the essentials and, at least for me, put divorce in a new light.
To be official, here's the actual MLA citation.
Levine, Beth. Divorce: Young People Caught in the Middle (Issues in Focus). Library Binding ed. Berkeley Heights: Enslow Publishers, 1995. Print.
