Los Angeles, CA, February 13, 2018 — A childrenâ€™s book to help families cope during the dark days of Trumpâ€™s Presidency.
The childrenâ€™s book, â€œEmma and the Big Orange Monster: A Tale of Unity and Bravery,â€� was published to help parents, educators, and counselors guide children through the dark days of Donald Trumpâ€™s Presidency. As a psychology graduate focusing on Marriage and Family Therapy, Masti Lashkari spent much of her time working with varies families across the Greater Los Angeles Area. She witnessed an increase in anxiety and feelings of isolation in children as young as four-years-old after the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Lashkari understood that if parents and educators did not find a new means to help empower children to overcome their fears, then the damaging effects of Trumpâ€™s presidency could resonate for years.
In a recent article by PopSugar, Angela Ellis calls Emmaâ€™s tale â€œA book for kids in the age of Trump.â€� Lashkari does an outstanding job of painting the importance of bravery to help kids realize their potential and how coming together can help unite a community during times of high duress.
Since Trumpâ€™s presence on the world stage, children have witnessed the U.S. president bully and intimidate others based on their gender, race, religion, and even disabilities. Through her book, Lashkari demonstrates to children the consequences of being a bully and how bullies should not be feared but challenged. She does an incredible job of delivering an uplifting message, by using childrenâ€™s perspectives and stories she heard while working as a therapist, to help raise their morale. As Lashkari notes, â€œThis book is not about my political views. In times where we have failed to give children a president worthy of their intelligence, I wanted to deliver a childrenâ€™s book that created hope and unity.â€�
