The dictionary describes a conundrum as a puzzling question, problem, or riddle. In cases where families become separated due to divorce or other circumstances, it is not uncommon for the children to be subjected to one, or a multitude, of negative viewpoints from the remaining parent.
Frank was fully invested in the life of his son, Albert, until one day his relationship with Albert’s mother fell apart. It wasn’t long before Frank began to notice a change in the way Albert spoke to him when they spent time together. It finally occurred to Frank that Albert’s mother had been filling his son’s head with misinformation and distasteful things about him.
Unfortunately, Albert had become a pawn in his own mother’s emotional chess match and…it was breaking his father’s heart.
Their chance for a fulfilling life was starting to show signs of crumbling, and it would be increasingly difficult to put this “Humpty Dumpty” back together again.
Humpty Dumpty: A Child’s Conundrum is a book written out of pain and anguish. It is the author’s hope that parents may fully understand how their words and actions can affect the lives and emotional stability of their children regardless of whether the parents are together or not.
