Hi Father’s Day is coming up and I wondered if anyone has some tips for how to explain to a 3.5 year old about having a mummy but not a daddy? She’s been with me for a year and a half and is well settled in but unfortunately life story work has only just started (long story) so we are very much at the beginning of her story. Thank you!
Have you come across the Todd Parr books? very good for explaining there are all different types of families.
We do Fathers Day cards for grandad.
Serrakunda27 thank you so much! Have bought some Todd Parr books in your suggestion and that’s a great tip for the cards ?
Mary Hoffmann's Great Big Book of Families is great too. It shows the huge variety of families.
I often get the why don’t I have a dad conversation’, I usually Talk about different types of families and relate it to people we know. I point out that although there is no dad there are lots of other wonderful people in my daughter’s life.
Thanks so much everyone, really helpful
