A child may feel sad that their parent (or parents) have to be at work. Monday is One Day shares the message that the parent is missing the child too—but in a hopeful anticipation sort of way! By marking the passing days with special little practices, they’re not simply counting down the days, but rather maximizing each one!
Author Arthur Levine says it perfectly, “I discovered that the pangs of parting never go away, even as your child grows more independent. You still can’t wait for that moment to hug them to you, to spend time together.”
Monday is One Day can help a child with anxiety about being separated from a parent or school, or work, or any reason. Develop your own way to count down the days!
