Hey, Momma Bear.
It's Back to School time, and while social media shows
kids happily skipping into their classrooms,
with both of their parents smiling at them,
that isn't our story, is it?
It's not for us to simply worry
whether they will do well in their studies
or make friends on the playground.
Sending our kids off to school
SHOULD BE a safe, neutral place
for them to learn, have fun
When their father is a narcissist,
and uses school as a place to
exert his coercive control,
and flex his 'parental rights'
"back to school" becomes
an entirely different ballgame and oftentimes
for you, for me, and
- most importantly - our kids!
