There are fiction authors that stir your soul with deep imaginative characters bound together in spell binding dramas, and we love them. There are advice authors who use words as though they were paper weights and the world was full of wind threatening every single sheet they write; unfortunately the pages are also heavy and the material drags on saying nothing. There are also those advice authors that promise treasures at the end of the rainbow in everything and deliver only a pennies worth of usable guidance. Then there a few authors that tell it how it is in words that actually work. Lucia Davindia Steele is one such author and her book, "Banishing The Boogieman," should be required reading for every parent! The fact is, even if you do not have children, or have never had children, there is a lot of value to be glistened from this powerful compact book.
A friend recently shared a simple story with me about a boy who was frightened of entering a hot tub with his father. Dad, holding the boys hand, suggested that his son greet the fear. The boy said, "Hello fear," and the two entered the hot tub. When they left, the boy paused, turned and looked back at the tub, and said, "Goodbye fear."
Straight to point, words that work teach at many levels and teach all of us every day. I strongly urge you to enrich your life and the lives of those around you, including of course you wonderful children and grand children, by reading "Banishing The Boogieman" today!

Well Lucia Davindia Steele has made all that possible with her latest book "Banishing the Boogieman." Her book is a collection of insightful information to help deal with situations stressful to children. She takes into account things that would never occur to the average parent.
In addition to the checklist of "hidden influences" that could be impacting your child's well being, Lucia offers a highly creative bevy of fun and playful ways to enhance and enrich any child/parent relationship.
Bravo Lucia. Well done and on behalf of children everywhere. Let me be the first to say, "Thanks. You rock!"
