Download the PDF for free Our story, a number of sheets with which children can write down, draw and/or paste and cut their own stories!

Mommy goes to stay is intended as a reading book together, to get, be and stay in conversation with each other about the profound event of an admission of one parent. While reading the book, there are opportunities to discuss important themes using the Parent part. Why this is important is reflected in the introduction and the article Research has shown....

But from everything also exudes the idea of making your own story. To give hands and feet, together with your children, to how they experience the situation. Or how they think and hope it will continue.

We created "Our Story" especially for this purpose. A free downloadable PDF containing a series of sheets you can use to write your own story. The last pages consist of some drawings that can be cut out, colored and pasted on. Not you the first pages together you have your own created family book! 

Have you made a booklet yourself (together)? Then we would be delighted to receive them. by mail to be sent to see how you use them. Maybe we could even post a few examples (with permission) on the website. 

Anyway: have fun drawing, writing and crafting!
