Prickly Subjects

I am tackling subjects that need words but kids often don't have them and parents are often to involved emotionally to help. This month I have studied (motivated by ReFoReMo!) a myriad of texts on divorce, death, grandparents and tried to find books on homelessness, hunger, hospice, miscarriage. Lots of lack of understanding of kids eye view and skating over the messier bits adults don't like. And I have completed writing:

on divorce - the process, not the "I have two happy homes" outcome
The day the animals arrived
When we were all human

death - loss does not end when the funeral is over
Grandma's Mincemeat Pie

Homelessness - questions with no answers
Homeless. Hungry. Help.

First Thursday is Pantry Day

In the works
divorce - How can this not be about me?
death - Grown ups say funny things at funerals
Alzheimer's - is he still grandpa
miscarriage - everyone is sad - what happened

Not a talking cow anywhere!
