Many times I get asked by mothers how to have difficult conversations about family problems with their young children. Children’s books are a great way to help children normalize family issues and learn healthy ways to express their feelings to you! Here are some of my favorites!
Have a military parent or parent that works in law enforcement that is battling from stress or trauma?
“Why is Dad So Mad?” And “Why is Mom So Mad” by Seth and Julia Kastle
Have a son that loves to play with dolls and want to let him know how awesome he is?
” Williams Doll” by Charlotte Zolotow
Do you have a child with anger issues? Try these books
“When Sophie Gets Angry- Really, Really Angry…” Molly Bang
“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” Judith Viorst
If your children have witnessed something very traumatic Margaret M. Holmes wrote the children’s book “A Terrible Thing Happened”.
Lastly if your family is suffering from an unemployed parent or struggling parent please read “The Way A Door Closes” by Hope Anita Smith.
