DK Simoneau is a devoted authority on living the 'split-family' lifestyle more effectively.
Her experiences as both a child of divorce and as a divorced parent have given her the compassion to understand and relate to each side of the divorce equation. As a speaker, coach, and author, DK helps both parents and their children learn how to get through the tough time and transition into a more harmonious shared parenting relationship.
After going through her divorce when her children were just 1 and 3, she experienced first-hand the trouble they had adjusting to their new living environments and routines. Not being able to find any reliable books to help her children cope with the day to day life experiences in a divorced family, she put her writing skills to use.
The result, "We're Having a Tuesday" was written to help children of divorce learn how to cope as they go back and forth between mom's house and dad's house. This is a beautifully illustrated read-along book that will soon become a favorite with your kids. It's written in a style they can easily relate to, helping them realize that what they are feeling is normal.
It even has a section where your children can write what they are thinking about. This is a great book for parents of young children to help open the door for them to express their emotions about the divorce. She is also the author of "Santa's (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!) Night before Christmas", another great children's book which can be found on Amazon.
