The tenth anniversary of 9/11 will be here soon. Are you one of the many women who gave birth on that horrible day? If you answered yes, are you prepared to talk about that experience with your child? I have two friends who gave birth on 9/11. Their story inspired me to write a short story titled: "My Birthday is September Eleven."
I have dedicated the book to all children born on 9/11 . The stories are designed to help teach children compassion. Parents and teachers can use the book to discuss the benefits of having and showing compassion to others.
A child psychologist read the stories, and this is the review she wrote on Amazon about the book:
Stories for a Healing Heart,
This review is from: My Birthday is September Eleven and Other Short Stories (Kindle Edition)
As a licensed psychologist with a specialty in children, parents often ask me to direct them to a book that they can read with their children. I have no problem sending parents to My Birthday is September Eleven and Other Short Stories. In this book you will find stories about children with real life struggles and how they find ways to cope with those problems. These stories present opportunities for parents and children to talk about what is happening in their own lives and possible solutions, while strengthening parent-child communication.
Hoping all will be safe on 9/11, 2011.
