Chip, The Puppy With Two Homes
Jodi Hassler has created a wonderful resource for parents, lawyers and therapists.
In this brightly illustrated children’s book, Ms Hassler creates a place where children are able to relate and empathize with the lovable puppy from the shelter, who was so adored by two families, that he split his time between them. While anyone can be affected when his or her home-life grows to include two separate houses, Chip becomes especially overwhelmed. It is tough to remember two sets of rules, two sets of expectations, and sleep in two different beds. He just begins to feel comfortable in one home and it’s time to go back to the other. After a long walk in a beautiful garden where an incredibly wise owl helps him to look at things differently, Chip discovers that he has everything he needs to be happy in both of his homes.
While children are helpless at changing their new reality, they can develop healthy thinking patterns and perceptions about self and a new family situation.
This engaging story is designed to tap into the child’s own inner resources that will empower him or her to adjust to shared custody in a healthy manner.
