Where are your children learning life lessons?  Are they emulating the words and actions of video games?  What happens when the child is having a life challenge?  Video games do not answer those questions.  Is your child faced with a serious medical challenge?

My guest Ray Perkins writes history mystery books for kids with a spin on how to handle adversity.  The journey through reading his books can share with a child some tips and encouragement to figure out how to grow in life.  He bases his stories on history and develops a character similar to his own son who had a serious health challenge at the age of five.  So does cancer enter your child's life and seem to take away their childhood?

Does your child read?  These books are short, simple reading and clearly written for the child who may have a short attention span also.

Ray's latest book 'The Mystery of the Silver Statue' addresses the importance of self worth and having the power to go on, no matter what.  It may be ordered here.

Join me today and learn why Ray retired from teaching Social Studies to begin writing adventures with life lessons for adults and children.  His website is found here.

Teach your children by sharing well written books and have a discussion about life coping skills. 

If you need further help with your child, contact me through my website.
