Barrington, Ill. (PRWEB) August 25, 2016
Gabriela Pattison marks her debut in the literary limelight with a parenting self-help book, “A Beautiful Choice” (published by Xlibris). This new publication offers parents and caregivers tools and resources on how to find answers on the most challenging journey through parenting – guiding children through life-threatening illnesses.
“As a parent, when our child gets diagnosed with an illness, we turn to the child within us for help without realizing or recognizing it. What we are really trying to accomplish is to find answers to guide ourselves and our children through the journey of a life-threatening illness,” explains Pattison.
“A Beautiful Choice” provides readers with the necessary recognitions, tools, and guidance to find the way during these challenging times. It compassionately shows the road through self-discovery, and starts to open readers’ mind to a new way of life.
“More children are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses and therefore there is a need for parents to have guidance how to help their child through such challenge,” the debut author adds. “‘A Beautiful Choice’ provides answers that fit every reader’s individual journey. It is a new way of seeing difficulties that empowers them and strengthens them.”
A snippet from “A Beautiful Choice” shares:
Kids don’t expect perfection or for us to know everything. They look to us for compassion and understanding that only comes from staying true to ourselves and admitting that we are not perfect, but we are here willing to make mistakes to figure out our new life. Validation is where love abides our being, creating an unyielding bond.
