Charley Chatty and the Disappearing Pennies: A story about lying and stealing (Therapeutic Parenting) Reviews
We have been suspecting our child of stealing for a bit now. When I finally had proof it happened, I was able to read this book with her to open the dialogue and come up with a solution. She actually took a lot more accountability in her letter than she did with me. I also love the part where the dad says, I’m choosing to believe you took them. If I find out later I’m wrong I’ll apologize. What a great verbiage. I may use that in the future as well. These books are invaluable for foster and adoptive parents. And my daughter loves that she can relate to the characters. If the author is reading, maybe you should make a child that appears to be a different race or looks different from the parents as this is a theme we deal with a lot and I know we would appreciate that.
Charley Chatty has a little problem. Her slidey eyes see all kinds of things including other people's money. This simple story deals with stealing and helps parents strategize on the best way to handle the situation. It is written by two therapists who deal with childhood behavior and comes with a few pages of parent training at the end of the book. This would be a great family or classroom book to have on hand when the situation presents itself.
