Where is Daddy?
The Story of a Divorce
I will be honest in saying that these types of books (I will call them “fix your problems with a story”) are a bit problematic for me. Yes, I understand that many of these books have therapeutic value. However, they need to be updated and revised to reflect the changes in society. I also want these books to stand on their own as good stories, not just a vehicle to send a message.
These older books on divorce often paint Daddy as the “bad” parent. This is also true for other life disruption books such as a parent’s depression, step-families, a working mother, etc. Again, even if they have value in a clinical setting, I still think that these books need to be evaluated and selected for their appropriateness for today’s children.
Also, Janeydear is a ridiculous nickname.
