Excerpt

“Then honey, we will have to decide what we want to do. We can’t live with someone who wants to hurt us. If Daddy can’t change, then we will have to live by ourselves. We have each other and we will be ok if that
happens. Maybe we can stay here. Maybe we will have to move but whatever we do, you know I love you and if we are together we will be ok,” said Mom.

Gentle Tools for Tough Questions
Author William Bentrim is forging a reputation for having the courage to tackle difficult questions facing kids today and applying a gentle, yet unflinching approach to seeking solutions.

Following his book "Daddy Goes on a Trip" about parent-child separation due to military deployment, Bentrim's latest work takes on domestic violence.

Bradley and Bonnie Bear return home from a visit with friends to find their mother with a black eye. She tells them the truth about what happened and answers all their questions and fears with reassuring but no-nonsense rhetoric about the situation. Her honesty and strength under duress gives the kids a reason to hope.

Bentrim does a good job highlighting typical concerns kids have when dropped into such confusing and frightening circumstances.

In a world awash in information overload, Bentrim provides a simple but candid framework for children to understand and acknowledge domestic violence as well as ways they can get help to cope with it.



What more can I say but wow!,
William Bentrim's book Mommy's Black eye is a masterpiece.
Domestic Violence happens more then we like to know about it.
Excellent book to introduce to children who have been caught in
situations like this.
I wish they had this book when i was a child.
"Two thumbs up"


Perfect for counselors and parents alike
As an elementary school counselor, it is difficult to find material to present serious issues such as domestic violence in a way that is both educational and supportive. Bentrim provides just that. The clearly written story and pictures in Mommy's Black Eye helps to introduce the sensitive topic while providing opportunities for further exploration.

One thing that I truly appreciate is the additional resources provided in the back of the book. Knowing that there is support for this type of problem and knowing that you are not the only once experiencing the pain of domestic violence is both comforting and a step towards recovery.
