Do You Sing Twinkle? A Story About Remarriage and New Family
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Living apart from a parent can be a hard adjustment for kids. And, if that parent remarries and has stepchildren, things can get really confusing. Told from a young boy's point of view, Do You Sing Twinkle? sensitively addresses many feelings and questions that children may have while adjusting to remarriage and a blended family after their parents' divorce.
An extensive Note to Parents by Jane Annunziata, PsyD, is included to help parents learn easy ways to stay connected with their kids and to talk to their children about common but difficult emotions that can come with divorce, remarriage, or blended families.
