I had the privilege in speaking with Stephanie Hepburn regarding her e-book that she has recently been published called Conversations with my Daughter: About Human Trafficking.
She has been writing since the seventh grade, when her teacher saw potential within her writing and her way of telling a story from start to finish. She put a lot of effort into her written work as the years have past and has written articles in the Guardian, Huffington Post, Americas Quarterly and the journal Gender Issues.
Stephanie is a mother of 2 children; a 7 year old daughter and a 21 month old son. Stephanie knows about answering some very hard questions where we as parents sometimes do not know how to answer those questions. Sometimes I find that even with my own children, these topics are hard to talk about with them. Sometimes the questions just come out of left field. We ( as parents) are stunned that our children are learning these particular issues in school. Just like Stephanie’s 7 year old daughter asked her about Human Trafficking.
The book is 23 pages in length. This makes it an easy read; especially when you want to start up the conversation to have with your own children. With a topic like this being able to break it down piece by piece for children to understand is a must. We have all learned about Stranger Danger but we do need to take it a step further when talking to children about the other dangers that are out there.
Conversation with my Daughter ; About Human Traffic would be a great addition to any parenting books you have in your own household because the author puts it into the easiest terms for children to understand. Children aged 6 and up would be able to read and relate to what Stephanie is conveying in her book.
Stephanie; I wanted to acknowledge that you are a very talented writer. I plan on purchasing your other book Human Trafficking Around the World: Hidden in Plain Sight.
Thank you Stephanie for taking the time to write a book to make it easier to be able to talk to our children about such a hard topic for us as parents to discuss with our children.
