Her Bachelor of Arts is also from CSUN in Child Development and with a minor in Psychology. Currently, she is a stay at home mom, trying to fulfill her life's dream to help children globally. This book is the start of achieving this goal. Not only will this book empower many parents to help their children cope effectively with the medical arena, it will reach young children globally via her commitment to donate half of her profits to Zoe International's "Zoe Children's Homes" where children rescued from the human trafficking trade are brought to be educated and cared for by a group of antelope people who are dedicated to showing these children that they have worth and are loved.
The book was written to empower parents help introduce the medical environment to their children and make it much less scary place for them. From introducing the doctors office for the first time to preparing kids for surgery or lab draws, this book focuses on developing or reestablishing and maintain a trusting relationship with your child so they can cope effectively, and you can help!
