That goal has inspired her recent writing, a series of books for parents, to help them help their children think outside the box… The story may appear simple, but it is realistic and entertaining and certainly addresses some issues all children have. Very well done!."

What inspired me to write my book?
My source of inspiration for writing this book was my oldest son who surprised me so much I almost needed to call a mobile intensive care unit to help me get my breath back. This all happened when one day my five year-old son said to me “Mom, I thought that you love me less than other mothers and today I realized that you just trust me!” I was shocked. That is what my beloved son has been carrying around in his young heart? Apparently so!!!! And why? Because a mother of one of his preschool friends almost fainted when he got a black eye, and he thought that is how a loving mother behaves. Because our neighbor offered painkillers to her children every time their heads hurt, whereas I offered a kiss. The principle here is quite clear, right? It was one of those magical and significant moments. Twenty years have gone by since then. Our relationship is a particularly good and loving one.
Try to imagine what would have happened if my son hadn’t had this insight? If he hadn’t told me what he’d been feeling? If he’d grown up with the heavy weight of his mother loving him less? It was this thought that drove me to write this book. I didn’t want any boy or girl to carry a wrong impression around with them. I wanted all parents to know that their children don’t take it for granted that they, their parents, love them; that people in every family would say each day how much they love each other.
What do I hope readers will take away from my book?
I hope that young readers will enjoy (!) and receive love from my book. My vision is to bring — a flexible way of thinking that they will stay for the duration of their entire lives, together with the insight that parents each have their own way to love. And that is perfectly alright.
As an expert in developing creating thinking, a coach and a mediator, I have tried to provide tools to use in discussions about the difference between reality and perception, about expectations, about love, and about not taking anything for granted. And of course — I would be delighted if the cards I have developed will lead to the communication of love and giving. The cards are made so that children can give their parents small gifts of love —a kiss, hug, help, empathy, and what not?
