Is Your Son Or Daughter Showing Signs Of Withdrawal?

Is your son or daughter showing signs of withdrawal? As a parent do you feel as if your child, tween, or teen is acting distant or slightly reclusive? If for some reason the answer is yes to either of the questions mentioned above, most likely your son or daughter is going through a challenge they find difficult to discuss with you. Sometimes parents unintentionally missed the signs of what could be troubling their kids due to work and often life’s everyday demands.

Below are a few excerpts from my first and latest books titled The Everyday Living of Children & Teens Monologues series and some of the possible issues your youngsters could possibly be going through.

The Everyday Living of Children & Teens Monologues


I’m never leaving this house again! Everything was great until this year. Now that I’m twelve, my clothes are too little. Looks like my hair has even stop growing. Just last month mom and dad told me that I have to get braces. I though that was the worse! Until two weeks ago.

Two weeks ago bumps appeared on my head. The day after that, three popped on my jaw. By the end of the week my entire face was covered with pimples. They are so ugly! And now I am so ugly.

Mom and dad told me that they would go away real soon. Well, how come real soon can’t be right now? I hate looking at myself in the mirror. I can’t even see my own face anymore due to acne. Well, I tell you, I just refuse to leave this house. And until these dot’s clear up on my face, I’m gonna remain right here! Right here at home!

The Everyday Living of Children & Teens Monologues Volume II


I make strange noises in the class just about everyday, and the teacher jumps down my throat for it. Once she gets started, the class immediately begins to laugh. Hey, I even laugh under my breath too. The teacher’s response is always the same. She says, “I’m going to put you in a class with strange people and creatures if you don’t stop making the strange noises!”

I know I irritate her to death. The truth of it all is that there’s nothing wrong with me. I’m a perfectly sane kid. I just wish that I had cool, fun, and popular friends. Since the “in kids” hardly ever notice me at lunch, I figured they’d definitely notice me in class making strange noises.

Hopefully by next month they’ll ask me to sit at the same table with them and eat. Until than, I’ll just keep making those irritating noises in class. I don’t mean to be annoying. I’m just trying to gain the reputation I need so that I can accepted by the “in kids.”

These are just two examples of what your youngsters could be going through. I guarantee if you decide to purchase one or both of my books you would definitely stumble on or more of the dilemmas your kid could be facing.
