Actually helpful to give a bad coparent
If your coparenting is toxic and doing poorly (they are likely unaware that they are in fact emotionally abusing your children) your giving them this book could help them recognize what they are doing and possibly stop some of their poor behaviors. The book is tiny small…and simple enough that they might actually read it or let it stay on a table or nightstand. A second book to consider giving your unhealthy coparent is “Divorce: The Art of Screwing Up Your Children” by Howard Drutman, PhD. The health of our children is serious stuff and I thank Knock Knock for creating this book … they may not have envisioned this use, but for these somewhat unique (thankfully) family situations…it can save a child’s mental health and ability to have healthy, intimate relationships for the rest of their lives!
Now my version of the BIble
As a young child myself, I too, have been traumatized by my parents who have this book. I can tell you right now that this book works wonders for trauma. I show it to my school friends (what friends?) and sometimes use these methods on them. They may be imaginary, but they're children too. I once read it to my teacher for show 'n tell and she looked at me with a face of shock and horror. 1000000/10 recommend for deliberately traumatizing children.
Hilarious! My kids didnt think it was funny but my husband and i thought it was sooo funny! Let my kids have kids and theyll get it too lol!
