Children are totally dependent on adults for the fulfillment of their needs especially during the early years of childhood. The dependency makes children vulnerable when supportive adults are not around. As children grow they find themselves facing issues on their own. They have to find solutions on their own. Story books and poetry books for kids have played an important role not just in entertaining children but also in helping them deal with childhood related challenges. Stories and poems help build character and independence.

I write stories and poems that support and empower children by validating childhood experiences, the joys and the challenges. I occasionally write for grown-ups.

…. an excerpt from the book, Poems that Empower Children


When Emma was a toddler,

darkness bothered her.

“Lights off, its bedtime!,” Dad cried.

“It gets too black!” Emma replied.

Said Mom, “Here’s what I think;

take Teddy to bed—you’ll be asleep in a wink.”

Emma took Teddy

and hurray, her worries flew away!…

… When Emma was a toddler,

doctor visits frightened her.

“But doctors are fun!” the nurse cried.

“I don’t know what she’ll do!” Emma replied.

Said Mom, “Let’s ask the doctor, you and I.

What will she do and the reason why.”

Emma spoke to the doctor

and hurray, her worries flew away!
