“Are you ready, Dear COVID Generation Child?
The day you start thinking that you are the only one anxious about going back to your routine, well, consider yourself in a smaller body, consider yourself a child!
In one of my interviews, I said, Don’t you worry about those kids, the COVID generation; they will end up loving school, loving to socialize, loving life, loving nature… they will be the generation of change, and this generation will and shall be the generation that will protect our environment, world, and life on earth!
I truly believe so, but this does not mean that we need to help them link back to reality like all of us.
Well, the days of PJ bottom and the dressy shirt are about to end; we are all about to go back on the field, push our way back into the social network without fear, and embark on pushing the start button for LIFE!
As adults, meeting, shaking hands, hugging, and probably kissing; while as children, as much as they will be the future, they, as well, will be the source of re-launching, innocently, the virus and its variants.
Between wearing the mask and shield, and forgetting it, dropping it off the nose, and probably the mouth, and/or dropping it totally because they miss running on the field and feeling the air, or missing putting that shiny lipstick, or wanting to eat comfortably… well, partly this is it, but are they ready to re-launch socially? this is the question!
In my book, MOMMY, I AM A PACER, I discussed issues that tackle social and emotional troubles that children go through and how to facilitate helping them. The book was written after a long experience as Peace Education Coordinator, instructor, and Middle School Director. During this phase, I witnessed invisible pain caused by the children to other children, the worst part was when we had to label this phase “BULLYING”, and the harshest was labeling the children, Bully, Victim, and Bystander. In the end, this vicious circle was caused by a series of pain caused to a child that made him in return cause pain to another, while proving authority since it was snatched from him!
In short, this is the story of children, no, not my book, the story of bullying, labeling, and pain. Therefore, I wrote MOMMY, I AM A PACER, the book of five short stories that address those day-to-day issues, and approach the way children feel while leaving room for the child to express his situation and feeling by co-illustration, when reading, with the author.
So, Do you have one of those, a child going back to reality?
I invite you to give him the gift that will help him overcome situations while being an ABIGAIL, the main character; and making a change in his community while being a PACER and showing Perseverance, Agility, Clarity, Empathy, Respect!”
