Taking time out to read as a family is fundamental.
There are quite a few reasons why I have always wanted to be an author, but the main reason is to educate other people about cerebral palsy and about the fact that it is perfectly ‘OK’ to be different. I am so passionate about teaching children this, and I honestly believe that if we can tackle this issue early on, and educate children in their early school years, we can then spread this educational message out into our communities to make them even more understanding and inclusive places to be. Reading books such as ‘Max And The Magic Wish,’ at home, and as a family with your children is also important to teach children about being inclusive too, children listen to and learn the most from their parents, and with the right attitude and parenting, we can all learn to be accepting of others, and especially be accepting of disability.
My children's book 'Max And The Magic Wish,' which is about disability and acceptance, is available on Amazon, here is the link if you would like to get your hands on your very own copy:-
