Where Am I Sleeping Tonight by Carol Gordon Ekster

Where Am I Sleeping TonightWhere Am I Sleeping Tonight? is a great way to help children of divorced parents deal with the change.

Mark wakes up to his younger brother Evan asking, “Mark, whose house are we at?” The smell of coffee and a morning radio show tell Mark they are at Dad’s. Things are challenging since their mom and dad got divorced. Sometimes the boys forget important stuff like homework at the other parent’s house. Mom and their step-dad handle things differently at their house than Dad does at his. But it’s great to be loved at two homes. And with a little bit of organization, homework doesn’t need to be so tough.

This short children’s book filled with page after page of charming illustrations, helps children of divorce understand that they can make it through all the changes that divorce can bring. From dealing with not always knowing which house you’re waking up in to how different parents handle running a household, Where Am I Sleeping Tonight? will let your child know she is not alone.

Your child will be encouraged to initiate change as Mark does when he decides he will focus on the positive aspects of his new life. And since it is Mark who finds a way be more organized so that homework isn’t such a challenge, readers will feel there are parts of their lives that they can control in spite of the fact that they can’t control which house they wake up in.

It also helps kids to realize that it’s okay that Mom and Dad handle things in their own way, and that focusing on the positives and controlling the aspects of life that they are able to, will help them feel better about having parents who no longer live together.

Where Am I Sleeping Tonight? could also help children of families not touched by divorce understand what their friends might be dealing with.

    1. This book sounds wonderful and especially valuable to parents coping with post-divorce issues. I’d like to make it available to my Child-Centered Divorce Network. You might be interested in learning about my own ebook, How Do I Tell the Kids about the Divorce? A Create-a-Storybook Guide to Preparing Your Children — with Love! which offers a unique approach for parents to break the tough divorce news.

      I hope you will contact me so we can discuss the above and other ways to support one another.

      Sincerely,

    2. Thanks for your note, Cheryl. I’d love to chat further with you once you get a chance to visit my site.
      July is National Child-Centered Divorce Month and I have a network of divorce professionals across the country helping to spread the word about our peaceful divorce message. I’m sure they’d all like to know about your book, as well.
