Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) January 16, 2006
Sharon Penchina and Dr. Stuart Hoffman, Scottsdale, AZ-based Healthcare practitioners, faced a dilemma….how to recognize and stress the importance of building self-esteem for children. Moreover, how to do it in a way which will both catch and hold a youngster’s attention -- and be learned and remembered?
Penchina and Hoffman, in a stroke of genius, chose to develop the warmhearted and non-threatening “Lovable Me®” Bug to bring positive reinforcement in a completely open and trustworthy way. Cute and cuddly, the bug is a happy, lovable, teaching device. Children embrace the concept, literally, with open arms. “Loveable Me®” has grown into a series of books, CDs and toys developed by the dynamic and driven duo of Penchina and Hoffman to help parents address constructive ways to build internal dialogue and self-esteem in their children.
Parenting experts have long recognized that, given proper reinforcement, children create positive emotional strength. Emotional strength is critical to the well-rounded development of a child’s personality. “Lovable Me” communicates this through books, CD’s and plush toys--both appealing and charming.
Penchina, the co-founder of 2 Imagine, publisher and developer of the Lovable Me® concept, sees the books, CD’s, and the plush toys as a win-win learning opportunity for children. “Instinctively, parents understand how self-esteem and empowerment add to a child’s fun, security, and guaranteed success in life.”
“Parents must understand how important these concepts are in creating lifetime benefits,” said Hoffman, a father of three boys. “As a parent, you look for ways to create personal and professional empowerment tools through observing and talking with your children. Lovable Me® offers an outstanding answer to parents seeking a solution.”
Experts agree. “The benefits in developing this type of relationship with your child are enormous,” said Dr. Caron Goode, Director of the Texas-based Academy for Child Parenting International. “Every parent feels validated as their child matures and successfully meets a variety of challenges throughout his/her life. As a parent your actions help to build children’s lifelong confidence.”
