Kids living in joint custody arrangements have to grapple with a number of logistical and emotional challenges, even under the best circumstances. Things get left or forgotten at the other house, projects and activities are interrupted, rules and schedules are different. In addition to feeling confused, frustrated, and even helpless because of these practical problems, kids also miss the parent they aren't with, the friends in the other neighborhood, the pet in the other house, their other activities — even the other house itself.
Ginny Morris and Mom's House, Dad's House spotlights many of the day-to-day experiences of a child in joint custody and a wide range of solutions to typical problems. Ginny's ideas for getting organized, keeping connected with her parents and friends, and coping with things she can't change, and more, provide a roadmap for all children who are navigating the sometimes bumpy road between Mom's house and Dad's house.
