New Parenting Press titles deal with abuse and abandonment

Parenting Press announced the release of two new titles this month Where Is My Mommy? Coping When A Parent Leaves (and Doesn’t Come Back) and Something Is Wrong at My House: A Book about Parents’ Fighting.

Written by Mary Kilgore, a clinical social worker, and her son Mitchell Kilgore, an upstate New York school social worker, Where Is My Mommy? (ISBN 978-1-884734-46-5) shows a child frightened and confused by a parent’s disappearance. Illustrated by Seattle’s Cary Pillo, this story shows how a child in this situation can get support and can learn to cope, especially with the lack of closure.

Something Is Wrong at My House
(ISBN 978-1-884734-65-6) is the revised and updated edition of a book created by Seattle counselor Diane Davis twenty-five years ago. It describes how children suffer when parents fight, and shows how they can obtain help and learn coping techniques.

Established in Seattle in 1979, Parenting Press is a family-owned publisher of children’s books and parenting publications.
