I always was found of children books as these were my emotional crutch when things got bad in childhood. So I began pondering the idea of helping parents teach lessons to their kids via child psychology. As funds are not where they need to be, I will have to wait for funding to come in. If any of you all would love to help with is this, it would be much appreciated as illustration and editing can be costly. Here is the story concept. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com if you are interested or want to know more.
Chad, the Sad Mad Bear
Chad was a sad, mad bear. He always felt that no one cared.
He would pretend to be happy to shows he was tough. He always smiled even when times got rough.
Everyone thought Scary Chad was very glad. Which deep down inside, it would make Chad the Bear mad.
“Why do you always get mad,” Sappy the Giraffe told him that day. He scuffed and told Sappy to “go away.”
“I don’t want to talk,” Chad said in a puff. “You can’t understand as it’s a lot of stuff.”
Sappy hugged Chad as she said, “Let’s go have a talk.” It’s a beautiful day, so let’s go take a walk.”
He began to cry as he told her how he feels. The feelings that he shared felt all too real.
“It’s okay to be sad every now and then. But being mad is an everyday trend.”
“I know how you feel as I’ve felt that as well. But pretending to be happy? It gets hard to tell.”
“You have to be brave and share how you feel with someone you trust.” “If you don’t want to feel that hurt, it’s a must.”
“I am not psychic, as you might already assume. Your face can show that you feel some gloom.”
“But know one thing, I’ve been there before. I use to cry behind my closed door.”
“And always hold the hurt I always use to feel. Because in life, happiness is something people try to steal.”
“It’s important to have a friend who truly understands. In the hardest of times, they will always lend a hand.”
“One thing you should know is that I have your back. I will always make sure that you stay on track.”
“The only thing I need is your support and trust. To keep our growing friendship, this is a definite must.”
“We might, at times, not see things eye to eye. And not on purpose, sometimes make me cry.”
“As long as you apologize, I’ll forgive with open arms. But don’t on purpose inflict emotional scars.”
“Trust me when I say you have a friend. I will always be there for you till the very end.”
Chad cried as he hugged Sappy and said, “Thank you for our talk. It was a beautiful day. I didn’t realize I needed this walk.”
“I never had a friend because I am a bear. And getting mad only gave others a scare.”
“It’s nice to have a brave friend like you. Unafraid to point out the bad things I never saw I do.”
It’s nice to know that there is someone who truly cares. And it’s great to trust someone with things I feel I can’t share.
“Thank you for our new friendship and the courage to be true. I’m grateful I gained a brave and strong friend like you.”
