It is our belief that parents are ARTISTS in growing their child. As artists, they bring out the best in their children by understanding key concepts and “tools” of good parenting and then innovatively using that knowledge and skill set.
NOTE: The truth of this concept is known to every parent who has more than one child—a child with the same mother and father and raised in the same home environment, yet are so often different in many ways. There is something different about the “marble” of each child.
The books and suggested parental activities and approaches are directed to help children observe the truth for themselves, at the appropriate age and maturity level—they will not be preachy, but fun and interesting and draw the children into the story. To help achieve this personal involvement each book will include photos of the child, and the child’s name in appropriate places, they will be central to the story. The books will range from newly published books, to already published books adapted to meet the personalized approach of the program.
The children’s personalized books will help parents present those values and principles that are fundamental to their core beliefs and behaviors they want their children to adopt. The books will be very aesthetic and intended to entertain, enlighten and inspire. The books will be accompanied by suggested activities and approaches for parents that will help children begin to adopt for themselves the values and principles presented.
Additionally, the one-on-one parent and child experience where the parent reads to or with the child has the very obvious benefits that comes with child and parent in close and warm communication with each other. And there is a magic that happens as the child begins to visualize themselves as a main character in the book.
The themes that will be presented in the books can be seen in the list above. If a parent, for example, wants a child to learn to be more considerate of others, there will be books appropriate to the age and maturity level of a child on that theme.
Additionally, each book will have an additional insert for parents, with suggested approaches and activities to introduce and follow up with after reading the book.
