Introducing a new mindfulness children's book series aimed at helping children navigate life changes.

As adults, we don't always recognize the safety and comfort children find in knowing what to expect and what is expected of them. While children are very resilient, knowing what to expect in an environment, even in every day tasks, can be the difference between just being resilient and truly thriving. As a psychotherapist and mom who has worked with kids of all ages, I know the importance of structure and consistency in a child's life. And while books with fictional stories are a fun way to talk about new skills, the developing brains of children thrive on clear and simple instructions and expectations. Designed with child psychology in mind, the Mindful Steps series uses a mantra-like, first-person narrative to explain skills and transitions. I wrote these books for my own children and found them so helpful, I wanted to share them with you. This series is simple. It's to the point. Over time, it's exactly what kids need to succeed (and thrive!). 
I am so happy to share my first series book, Potty: a mindful how-to guide for toddlers and kids. Follow my gender-neutral character, (who just happens to have the same name as your child!) through a step-by-step guide on how to use the potty. This book is intentionally neutral to family composition and gender in order be inclusive to all children and types of families.  Also included, are engagement questions to help your child become more mindful at each step.
