Greetings from another child whose parents thought she was asleep.

I'm afraid your personal experience is so relatable to so many of us, but of course, you have a unique, heart-wrenching way of putting it onto paper.

I'm all for letting the children know the truth, in a way they can handle and comprehend it, of course.

Conflict is part of life, and our children need to know how to navigate it respectfully and healthily. That's one crucial skill I hope I'll be able to teach my son.
