“The Survival Guide for Mining Families” By Alicia Ranford

Alicia Ranford, the Co-Founder of Mining Family Matters has written “The Survival Guide for Mining Families”. It is a 32-page book which includes professional advice from a registered psychologist. It includes a large number of issues faced by the mining families such as children’s behavioral issues.

The guide will help the families of people working in mining industries. The workers live in isolation with lack of communication that results in broken families.

The parents cannot make weekly commitments or social and sporting commitments to their kids. The book will help the parents understand the behavior of their kids and to overcome the difficulties.

The book focuses on helping families to cope with fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) or drive-in, drive-out (DIDO) lifestyles.

Alicia Ranford has moved six times to different places in the last 12 years. She has raised two children. In her lifetime she has seen many marriages collapsing under the strain of living apart that why she has written the book to help the mining families to solve their problems.
