When a parent deserts a child, this book can help your child through this tough time in their life.
What happens when your child’s mother just disappears after a divorce or during a marriage. It is a dilemma faced by dads who are raising children alone. In some cases the heartbreak is caused by an absent mother who doesn’t want to be involved. It is very important the tell the truth, although many dads’ inclination is to protect their children from whatever will hurt them, it’s not a good idea to lie to them or withhold too much information about their mother and why she is not involved in their lives. Definitely don’t tell your child that their mother is dead, it is better to explain to them that being a parent is not an easy job and that some parents are just not ready. Read this book to your child regularly to help them through this difficult time in their life.
Routine and being able to predict what happens is important to children and makes them feel safe. However as we all know life does not stay the same, there are many changes through our lifetime, we move house, we have another baby, friends move away, kids move school, separation or divorce happens or we experience a death of a close one.
Children need time to process all of the information that they are exposed to and appreciate daily routines and repetition or they may become stressed. They like knowing that when they arrive home from child care, mommy and daddy fix dinner, the family eats, then there is a bath and then two stories. Children thrive on the predictability of daily routines. Brave Books offer a selection of titles covering changes in the lives of children.
Many books have been written others are coming soon.
