The Weather House

Living with a Parent with
Bordeline Personality Disorder

This illustrated book for school-aged children provides, through its touching story, clinically sound and age-appropriate information for children, giving them clear answers to frequently asked questions about the borderline personality disorder of a parent, and suggesting ways to cope with the situation.

Through weather pattern analogies, the book describes 2 days in the chaotic life of David and Mary. Psychoeducational comments are provided throughout the book by a “weather wiz” who explains, in a simple manner, to both the characters and readers, the mother’s sometimes strange behaviors that can be challenging to comprehend. The wonderful illustrations help with the understanding, and lighten the story with humor.

This book will help teach children take a certain distance, to better understand what is happening at home and how not to feel responsible for their parents’ stormy moments.
