Hello & Welcome!
Christine Fishman is a Mom of two wonderful children, an Early Childhood Educator and a self-proclaimed proud anxiety warrior. Through writing, Christine found a creative outlet, driven by a passion to relate with the audience through soulful words and connections made through her literature.
The first published piece of writing is a children’s picture book called “Sweet Honey Kisses for an Anxious Bear”. This endearing, yet all-to-familiar tale of a young child, in this case Little Bear, feeling anxious and often afraid of everyday experiences that seemed bigger than him. It also shines a light on how far Mama Bear’s love and gentle words can go, when she herself understands and encourages Little Bear to have a brave spirit and a fierce mind as he takes on his day.
Writing this story, was a labour of love for author, Christine Fishman, moved by her own son’s challenges with paediatric anxiety and driven by her desire to make a difference in the children’s mental health field. She hopes the conversations that evolve from this little story will have a meaningful impact both at home and in the classroom, and encourage children, families, and educators to speak openly about children’s mental health in a thoughtful and relatable way to foster ongoing healing and growth.
