My Mommy’s Boyfriend is an illustrated children’s book that introduces young readers to a topic that is very common, but hard to talk about. Many children have faced abuse without even knowing it, and they continue to fall victim to it because of their lack of knowledge on this subject. Written by Theresa Bowe, My Mommy’s Boyfriend teaches young readers that this subject exists, what to do if they ever encounter this situation, and more importantly, that confiding in multiple trusted adults, speaking up and revealing the secret is a major component in putting this to an end.
Sing with Suzy as she educates kids about speaking up and finding their voice through her song. Abuse and unjust behavior among kids can be avoided with proper education and awareness. Suzy learned the importance of not keeping bad secrets and the effect that led her to lose her voice by saying ok to it. Finding her voice gave her the power to stand up and become a leader in educating her peers. This song is based on the children’s illustrated book My Mommy’s Boyfriend, written by Theresa Bowe, Illustrated by Vick Fleurimond
