In this Encouragement story, a man learns that his son has been born with hemophilia and autism. The stress of the situation catapults the father into single parenthood and he is forced to endure a difficult court battle for sole custody of his disabled son. Through diligence and determination, he develops methods to further help his troubled child. More importantly, he stumbles upon what he believes is his personal calling in life and his purpose for living. With the realization that he has discovered unique methods and tools to cope with parenting difficulties, the man's focus is now fulfilling his dream of establishing himself as a writer of children's literature.

While very "personal," my story is written in such a manner as to impart a lesson and to aid parents of physically/mentally/emotionally challenged children by helping them to cope with the situations they face. I am not necessarily saying that my way is the way, but rather I am saying, "Here are examples that you can use to help to 'imagine' coping mechanisms that will work specifically for your Book child.

Dr. Bob Rich, M. Sc., Ph.D., (counselling Psychologist multiple award winning author) says, "Many parents despair, feel resentful at fate, and buckle under the strain. Well all of us are likely to do so from time to time. I am sure Chris has. However, he is a shinning example of how to turn adversity into an opportunity for personal growth, giving and love.

Bodola is a cheerful, adventurous story that shows the difficult decisions parents of children diagnosed with A.D.H.D are forced to make as their busy and spontaneous mid-graders begin to manifest their desires for independence. Like most boys and girls, Bodola is a boy who enjoys jiving, singing, playing with toys, and most of all, he loves chips and pop.

He's never been to the store by himself, and he asks Mama to please let him go today. Mama knows that Bodola gets excited by new things and tends to forget what he is doing, but she wants him to learn about the responsibility that comes with being independent. While on his way to the store, he embarks on an adventure of riding a train and then a bus, and is delighted by the sights he sees along the way. Mama attempts desperately to catch up to her son before he realizes that he didn't do what Mama told him to do and panics. Bodola is crafted by an experienced parent with the intention of optimizing the reading experience and enabling its audience to obtain a fuller comprehension of A.D.H.D and associated theories of the mind, which will in turn empower its readers to self-regulate the development of deleterious behaviors.

Bodola es un cuento alegre y aventurero que se trata de las decisiones difíciles que se obligan a tomar los padres de niños diagnosticados con Desorden de Déficit de Atención e Hiperactividad (DDAH), cuando sus niños entretenidos y espontáneos llegan a los grados superiores de primaria y empiezan a expresar sus deseos de ser independientes.

Como a muchos niños y niñas, a Bodola le gusta cantar, bailar y jugar, y sobre todo, le encantan las papas de bolsa y el refresco. Nunca ha ido a la tienda solo, y le pide a su Mamá que le permita hacerlo hoy. Mamá sabe que Bodola se emociona por las cosas nuevas y que suele olvidarse de lo que debe hacer, pero también quiere que su hijo aprenda de la responsabilidad que implica la independencia.

En camino a la tienda, Bodola emprende una aventura, tomando un tren y luego un autobús, y disfruta mucho de todo lo que ve en su viaje. Desesperada, Mamá intenta alcanzar a su hijo antes de que él entre en pánico cuando se de cuenta de que no ha seguido las instrucciones de su Mamá de regresar a casa “in-medi-ata-mente".

Bodola es elaborado por un padre experimentado, con la intención de optimizar la experiencia de lectura para que sus lectores obtengan una comprensión más plena de DDAH y las teorías de la mente relacionadas, y así fomentar en los niños el poder de controlar el desarrollo de comportamientos perjudiciales.

Most parents of shy children need behavior management tools that are practical and supportive.


A child's picture book can be not only a fun and inspirational way to assist the caregivers with improving their children's learning and social skills, but also a way to encourage confidence in the child.

Act Alive and Say High-Five is a giggly way to address the difficulty that shy children may experience when meeting other children. The little girl wants to say hello, but whenever she attempts to do so, she looks up at her father and says “I want to go home.”

Dad comforts his daughter and then “smack” go their hands as Dad gives his little girl an unexpected high-five.

“What was that for?” asks the little girl. “That is your new way to say hello. The next time you feel shy, Just Act Alive and Say High-Five,” Dad explains. The little girl questions her father and does not believe saying hello can be so easy, but soon must put her new-found way to the test. She spots a boy coming toward her and begins to feel uneasy. Dad gives his daughter a quick pep talk and she is prepared to “Act Alive and Say High-Five.”
