Confident Queen activities for #WorldBookDay

On world book day, I personally feel children should dress up  as character that reflect our diverse community, and we can do that by also making sure the books children read reflect this. Raising my children I remember one of my son’s coming home one day from primary school upset because he had dressed up as a character from one of the books, and a few of the children had laughed at him and said to him that he could not be the character because he was black. I must admit I was quite upset and decided to do something about it through writing my books and researching other authors.

‘Confident Queen’ is a fun loving modern day superhero who helps children to unwrap he Gift of  Confidence which is within them by using the contents of her special ‘Gift of Confidence’ toolkit which contains a creative array of items which can help to boost and maintain a child’s confidence from childhood through adulthood. Research in numerous fields including Education, Health, Psychology and Sociology, highlight the importance of confidence building in our children and young people and Confident Queen is on a mission to do just that.”

Confident Queen appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in April 2012 and was able to wow the audience with her fun outfit and got everyone singing “If you are happy and you know it clap your hands”. Since then she has delivered a lot of happiness and confidence sessions for schools and community centres!

Dangers of posting children’s pictures online

Dangers of posting children’s pictures online

GMBMay

I had a great time on Good Morning Britain discussing online safety when we post pictures of our children online, and there are a few things we can all do to ensure safety of the pictures we do post.

Good Morning Britain’s Online safety expert, Vicki Shotbolt has her top three tips for online safety:

  1. Turn off location based settings on your phone
  2. Check privacy settings – turn on tag requests, who can see your photos?
  3. Ask permission if you are posting a picture of someone else’s children

Check out some reviews:-

Angela Steele “A great read for the younger ones. So uplifting. It made me smile.”

Sarah Webb “We thought the book was really good. Joshua, who’s 6 really enjoyed it, I read it to him first and he’s also read it by himself too since. I think it’s a great story and really is beneficial for children who experience a lack of self esteem/confidence. I have also read it to my foster girl who’s a little old, however, is probably about the same age as Joshua with regards to learning and she thought it was really nice too!”

Jade Webster “I have just read your book, its wonderful.”
