Pink is Just a Color and so is Blue....available soon

Finally!!

My new book, Pink is Just a Color and so is Blue will be available on Amazon in 2 weeks. 

 

 Pink is Just a Color and so is Blue is inspired by my 2 boys.  I once heard my older son telling my younger one that he was “like a girl” because he liked the color pink and enjoyed playing with toys that some people might associate with girls.  I had bought him a Dora doll, a stroller and a couple of other dolls when he was preschooler.  As he got older, he wanted My Little Pony, Littlest Petshop and Zoobles, which are marketed mostly  to girls.

 

I tried to explain to my older son that they are just toys  and pink was just a color.  I told him how he also liked pink at one point but out grew it.  After hearing him taunt his brother, I had to have a serious talk with him. 

 

I wondered about other boys who may be, or have been, in similar situations.  This is the beginning of teasing and bullying.  Anti-bullying and anti-teasing education has to being when the children are very young and not in middle school.  Teaching kids to be accepting of people’s difference has to begin early on.  When they come to understand that we don’t all have to fit into a mold, they will become better “tweeners”  and teenagers.

Have you ever looked at your blog’s dashboard and whimpered to yourself, “Oh, I just cannot in any way, shape, or form write a blog post today?”
