Hi, I need some help, and I'll cross-post this in Single Parenting. I just thought some of you may know some great books, and I'm in DIRE need!!
To make a long story short, I moved about 300miles from my ds's dad. We've been separated for ages, but I just moved a month ago. My DS (he turns 3yo in January) is having a hard time. Not with being here, where we live now, but with visits.
Right now, visitation is 1 weekend/month, PLUS one week/month. The weekend is in a small town that my ex claims is nearby where I live, but really its a 2hour drive. The week long visit is at my ex's home. I'm not super happy with the visitation, but thats another topic altogether.
The problem is, my ds misses me terribly when he's at Ex's for the week long visit. He's only ever been away from me for that long a few times before now, and its only been one cycle of visitation since we moved.
I'm looking for children's books about kids whose parents live in different cities. Ideal would be if the book was about a toddler, but really anything will do so long as it is a picture book.
Or, something about how to talk to a very young child about stuff like this - even advice would be good.
I know that moving was the best thing for us, since I did not have a job where we were before, and now I have my dream job, AND I have family support that is helping us out a TON.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
