I would like to make a difference in the lives of your average parent. It's all about helping kids. Kids have a lot of growing to do! Physically, emotionally and mentally. We are all different, come from different backgrounds and have different circumstances. But we are all the same. We want to feel loved, to be included and live life and enjoy what it has to offer.
Books for Young Minds opened it's doors recently to sell children's picture story books to Australians. I am the Mum of 2 young boys and want to teach them all kinds of things. I have found picture story books to be so very helpful to me. The trouble has been finding the right story books. There are so many books out there, that if you want to buy a book for a child, you just pick from what is there. I believe that it is an opportunity to pick a story that has a learning experience in it for your child.
There are so many books out there about playing in the park, making friends, or about a cat or dog and plenty of fun books with a licensed character on them. Books are great for kids and I encourage every parent and caregiver to keep reading to their child on a daily basis. What I am saying is, given the opportunity, choose books that teach your child about feelings, keeping themselves safe, eating healthy, stranger danger, bullying, internet safety, lying, cheating, consequences, sharing, being yourself, illness, and life in other countries and more.
