Mar 02, Chloe Jackson rated it really liked it Shelves: divorce. Mom and Dad Don't Live Together is a story about a little girl whose parents are divorced. She talks about the different things she does at her mom and at her dad's house.

Apr 18, Angela rated it it was amazing Shelves: difficult-areas-illness-and-seper , irony , anxiety , affection. Absolutely love this book! It talks about the difficult topic of divorce and a child having to leave at two places. It does an excellent job at stating all the positive things living at two places brings, such as experiencing the city life and the country life.
Also reiterates that child loves both parents and they both love her. I could use this book as one to either make connections and disconnects within my students. This is a book about living in a home situation that had been changed by divorce. The author tells a story from a little girl's perspective about he mom and dad, how her life has changed, and the worries she has about her new situation. I think this is a wonderful resource for teachers and parents to have to work with children going through these types of changes.
Aug 25, Oana Cerchezan rated it really liked it Shelves: books-that-are-about-confused-emoti , diversity , family. I really liked this book because it gave a child's viewpoint and shared her emotions as she was describing her family. I will ask the student's about what it means to be divorced. I think this discussion is crucial because many children feel confused about what is going on in the family. They need to understand that the love that their parents have for them is still the same, even if things are different.captive8.smarthotspots.com/5107-chica-busca.php

Save the frustration, anger, negativity and judgement for discussions with adults, your own therapist, divorce attorney etc. I just want to be a kid. Talking to your kid about bills, loans, child support or the divorce process, is not their concern. Kids do not have control over finances. Putting the burden, worry or guilt on a child over something they don't the tools to manage is unfair.
If they start to engage you in triangulation by talking about what the other parent does or does not do, do not engage in the conversation. Similarly, if you just paid for clothing, field trips, special trips, bought them a puppy etc. Try not to one up your Ex by giving or buying stuff. Kids need to learn feeling good comes from within. Feeling good comes in the form of connection, discussion, feeling seen and loved. Kids want and need special time with Mom and Dad, one on one. It can be challenging to arrange if you are divorced or if you have more than one child.
However, it's in these moments you can see parts of each other you didn't know were there and strengthen your connection. Conversations on the way to the grocery store, singing along to songs on the radio and creating private jokes are priceless and make them feel special and seen. In addition, kids one on one without the distraction of other people to color the experience, can be a totally different person.
Before you know it they will be grown and these moments will be gone. Take this time, it will increase their joy and yours. As kids get older and start to show their personality and opinions as individuals it can be tempting to treat your kid like a friend. But they don't need to know about your dates, your lizard boss, your body image issues or your sex life etc. Boundaries are important and by keeping super personal things to yourself it shows them where and with whom it is safe to share personal information.
Helping Your Child Through a Divorce
Your kids do not want to know about your dates or your dating profile. Your kid wants something to connect with you about, and adult things are not it. That is not to say you can never be angry, sad or have a bad day. You can be all of those things and say how you feel, but all of the details are likely not something they need to know. They are looking to you to see how to manage life's challenges and that includes leaning on you for support not the other way around.
You may hate your Ex and not want to be in the same room as them. But guess what? Too bad! That's right, your child's recitals, graduations, games, broken bones etc. I'm not suggesting you shouldn't honor your feelings and if the situation is unsafe that has to be taken into consideration.
