"Children are taught to tie their shoes and how to do arithmetic, but they are rarely taught how to develop a healthy sense of self, especially when faced with some sort of external criticism. "Little Rabbit and the Grumpy-Poos" helps children understand that not all characters in their life will validate them, and that is okay because within them is the power to validate themselves, once they know how."

"The fear of not being enough or of competition and superiority being the "stuff" of relationships are not good for children and can be a set up for self-invalidation and problematic relationship choices in adulthood. "Little Rabbit and the Grumpy-Poos" is a reminder to foster the exuberance and natural curiosity in children as a way to keep all of our "grumpy-poos" at bay and cultivate the authenticity and mental health of children."
