When Mama & Daddy Fight 

When Mama & Daddy Fight was written to give a voice to the children who have witnessed domestic violence. Domestic violence impacts children cognitively, psychologically, emotionally, and physically. The essence of a child is forever changed when they witness violence and live in a chaotic environment. When Mama & Daddy Fight walks readers through a day in the life of children who witnessed domestic violence as they attempt to navigate friendships, school, familial relationships, and manage their emotions.
