This story helps children to solve the problem of bed wetting by assisting the child to subconsciously accept behavioural change as he or she listens to a story.
Children learn through stories and easily associate with the characters in stories. This natural tendency provides a parent a wonderful opportunity to guide his or her child’s behaviour and feelings and teach them understandings with which to improve their EQ.
In the ebook, notes are provided which teach parents, educators and play therapists the valuable skills of story telling. The notes are interspersed in the story and explain why certain words and ideas are offered in the story.
Why are stepmothers ubiquitously portrayed in fairy tales and folk legends as wicked, plotting and cruel? Is it because they will do anything on earth to shove the stepchildren out so they and theirs can inherit all the love and money? Is there such a thing as a non-evil stepmother? Or are all stepmothers evil breed?
Dear Evil Stepmother is the engrossing and poignant account of a disenfranchised father’s child, and the woman who heaps shame and guilt on innocent children just because they are in the way. If you are a stepmother, or thinking about becoming one, this short but powerful tale will evoke an honest appraisal of who you are in relationship to your stepchildren, or future stepchildren, your partner and his family. Forewarned is forearmed, for in the end, evil stepmothers dance on the red hot coals of hell!
After trying desperately to answer his daughter’s question in a way that she could understand, and a unavoidable journey through the history of race relations, he begins to question his own reasoning for trying to teach her to recognize colors in the first place. Maybe she, and the rest of the world, would be better off if as parents they did not say to their children – Learn Your Colors.
David Martin Hession is a professional educator who has been teaching high school in both Miami, FL and Trenton, NJ for over 15 years.
His life-long dream was to travel the world and meet new people. His dream came true in 2003, when he met and married the love of his life – Awa Douake, who is from Cote d’Ivoire, Africa – while he was on vacation in Madrid, Spain.
David and Awa have three beautiful children – Afousiata, Khadee, and Rakim – for whom this book is written.
Their hope is that people will read this book – Learn Your Colors? – and really take a look at themselves and how they teach their children about people’s skin color. They would love to have people see themselves and others for who they are and not for where they are from or what they look like.
Andres writes in an engaging and refreshingly honest way, as he explains and explores how the bonds of attachment form slowly between the children and their new parents. In parts witty and in others heartbreakingly sad, this book provides a rare male insight into being an adoptive parent.
“A real eye-opener. This story evokes the emotional and intellectual challenges of adoption in a powerful and very human way. It’s one thing to hear adoption laws and practices discussed in the media; quite another to experience them alongside a real couple, trying to do the right thing at every different, challenging stage. For that reason, I’m sure this book will be of great value to any prospective adopter, and of genuine human interest to others.” James Spackman, Watkins Publishing.
This illustrated children’s book has some fun with the grumps.
