Every family has a level of dysfunction lurking with their bloodline that's a secret, must stay hidden and no one is to talk about it. But in Why Is Mommy Acting Funny? by Robert Sky Allen, the author helps the young reader better understand a few essential elements of what could be happening in not only their family but in others. The nuances of addiction from alcohol and prescription drugs to other substances can wreak havoc on a family not only in its current state but for future generations. When children notice that their parents are acting irrationally or erratically what are they to do? In this book, Robert clearly points out some of the steps that a child can take to navigate through this trauma. This book is a must-have not only for children with addicted parents or loved ones but for the ability to recognize the symptoms.

I was really happy that Why Is Mommy Acting Funny? by Robert Sky Allen was written for children to help them to navigate through this trauma, understand what it is and know that it's not their fault. Even though adults are supposed to be mature and to be the catalyst for the growth of their children, this is not always the case. Adults go through challenges too. This book will also teach children the pros and cons of coping or not with their own challenges as they navigate from childhood well into adulthood. Your child will learn how important it is to tell someone, especially if they are a victim of their parents' actions. Highly recommended.
