Something is Wrong at My House: A Book About Parents' Fighting


Product Description

Published USA, 2010 (revised edition)
Something's wrong at my house
My mummy and daddy have terrible fights
It scares me and I don't know what to do

I also feel mixed up
Does the fighting start because of me?
Is it because my parents don't want me or love me because they have a problem?

This book helps children from violent and non-violent homes by giving them permission to have feelings, acknowledge them and make decisions about how they wish to act on them. The format is designed for use with both preschool and school-aged children. The longer text on the left is written for older children; the shorter captions beneath the illustrations are directed toward younger children. The appeal of this book is its acknowledgement of the wide range of emotions experienced by children in violent homes. Pencil drawings.

Ages 4-8 years
Paperback. 32 pages
