Promoting Inclusion at an early age and upward as well.

2 comments

Hi. I am a Children's Book author from the East Coast. I wrote my first picture book, "Playgroup Time," which is the first book promoting inclusion and diversity at an early age. The story is about my son (15 months old) meeting a new baby of 8 months old at a weekly early intervention structured playgroup who cries on his first day. Through a few itty mishaps and adventures, my son, EJ, shows his new friend that playgroup is fun to meet new kids from all abilities.

 

As an adoptive parent whose child was born early and underweight (his birth mom gave birth early as she did not know she was pregnant), I was told my son would need to be evaluated for EI(Early Intervention). I was taken aback as I was not given any materials to read about EI and a picture book or materials to learn what a playgroup is. I wrote this picture book so every doctor's office and EI office would have this picture book in their offices to educate parents about EI and their playgroup programs. Unfortunately, the EI centers in my state can't buy this book as their funds dried up to buy resource books for parents. I also wrote this book to decrease the stigma that EI playgroups benefit all children.

I also wrote "Three Best Friends," which is the first picture book to promote inclusive and accessible playgrounds for children with mobility impairments and all abilities. Unfortunately, many playgrounds across the US are still using wood chips to save money on the flooring for their playgrounds. As a result, children who are wheelchair users or use walkers can't play with their friends in the playground. Soft cushioning flooring benefit also parents who use baby carriages and strollers as well. In my book, the protagonist gets his wheelchair stuck in the wood chip flooring where he is determined to fit in despite being bullied by two able-bodied kids.

    Handling your teens is becoming a sensitive topic these days. A lot of parents are complaining about their college-going teens and their mischieve behaviors inside and outside their house. It's better to listen to your kids and try to explain your point. Shouting can never be the solution for anything. If they want some help do help them. Try to make a bond with your kids. Teens in ages between 12-17 need a companion to understand their needs. But what if they want pocket money on a daily basis routine? Well, ask them what you gonna do with that money because most of the time teenagers ask for money for the essay writing service and don't tell their parents which is understandable because they are spending to get good written papers for their assignments. So ask them in a friendly manner and make sure they are not investing or waste it in an illegal way.

    Parents have huge responsibilities they are responsible either the children have good behavior or bad behavior. they provide the necessary food, clothing, shelter and medical care and so many many things that may not be countable. they are equally responsible for providing sound education and sound knowledge of religious and moral training. if your mother's father did the job to give a better life for children like me i am doing a job on a private full-time company then i realize my children are disturbing so i start freelancing Cover letter writers now i am comfortable. i give proper time to my children and give them an also better life. give love to the child You are blessed who is devoted to his parent's words. support them, give a friendly environment and a friendly relationship.
