Many of the followers of ABC’s Ministries will remember the article When Children Go Unheard that I wrote last year. In that article, I expressed my plans to write a book about children in America who have no voice, including abused, neglected, and foster children, in particular. Forced into isolation from the pandemic, which I turned into a sabbatical to write, I have completed the text of the book, also changing the title. The new title is Why Didn’t They Hear Us? The Causes, Consequences, and Solutions to Children Feeling Unheard. Typically, I self-publish any books I author through ABC’s Ministries. However, this upcoming new release will be published by Author Academy Elite.
Before I forget, I want to thank those of my followers who participated in the “Children without Voices” survey. Your insight and comments were invaluable in making the new book much richer in content. Data, comments, and suggestions from the survey are noted and interspersed throughout Why Didn’t They Hear Us?. Also within the covers of Why Didn’t They Hear Us? you will find:
- Examples from my life and from the research of how children are harmed when they have no voice.
- Hope and encouragement for adults unheard as children to not repeat the same mistakes with children today.
- Proposals to minimize the problem of children not given a voice in society.
Are you ready to become a part of the solution to the problem of children being unheard? If so, this book scheduled to be released on October 1, 2020, is for you!
