No matter what I do in life as a woman and a parent, I am drawn to helping children. I know there are agencies and nonprofit organizations to assist children but there has to be more that I can do. I think that working to uplift a child is so much easier than dealing with therapy as an adult. Maybe it’s because I had to fight so many demons to become who I am today that I hope to find a way to help deter such demons from coming to children.
Whatever the reason, I have a strong pull to help our future generation. This is why I sat down with my daughter and wrote a book loosely based on how my daughter and I interact. This isn’t a book to tell parents how to do their job, it is not an “I know all” book either, quite simply put; my book is the start of series to assist children (mainly girls of the tween/teen age group) to think positive and to learn to love who they are. I think once a child has lost loving who they are or is faced with the pressure from peers they can easily get depressed and start doing things that they should not be doing.
If each child is taught how to love who they are, if each child is shown actions and words of encouragement, I firmly believe that the world can be such a sweet place in the future years. Not to mention children would be able to enjoy childhood much longer being able to learn how the power of their thoughts can change anything!
My book isn’t released to the public yet and this isn’t a way to promote my upcoming release of my book, this is me simply thinking out loud. I really want to find ways to write, volunteer and do whatever I can to help children. Of course, I start with my own three children each and every day when I wake up as “mom” but I know the power of positive can reach well beyond the walls of my home. This is why I have written my book and this is why I continue to blog, to help others in any small way I can. If you smiled today reading something I wrote then that time I took to write something was well worth it!
