Maybe I am Different: Depression, Bullying, Anxiety: Opening The Lines Of Communication With Your Child (Paperback)
Designed for the childhood and adolescence phases of development, Maybe I Am Different addresses the emotions of depression, anxiety and the effects of bullying within a child's peer community. Utilizing realistic imagery and poetic verse to engage the child, Laurent creates a lifeline of open communication between the parent and child - bridging the gap of a sensitive and challenging topic of discussion. "As our society transitions into the new age of economics and technology, ESPECIALLY now with the COVID-19 Pandemic, our children's psychological and emotional development is more vulnerable as a result of these societal changes. Their children] cultural, economical and environmental differences within their communities often times can exacerbate psychiatric symptoms, such as depression, anxiety and bullying, within a child's environment. Our core parental responsibilities lie within the lifeline of open communication and the active participation we exhibit daily in our children's lives." - Doc Laurent.
