I missed out on essential guidance when I was a child. As a young adult, I knew how important generosity and fairness was, but I didn't know how to judge others or trust myself. Through persistence, I became good at managing life; I learned how and when to give way to others, how to speak up, create a sense of community wherever I am, to be myself, keep up my vitality and regulate my time.
I don't want young people today to take years to learn the things that should be taught early in life.
I've designed these stories to be used as an indirect teaching tool. The young person learns by beingin the story, not by reading about someone else or being told what to do.
Remember the old adage ...
tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand.
