I need to contribute. I am someone who needs to feel like I am making a difference in the world, no matter how small. Volunteering is a core value of mine and although my schedule makes it hard for me to commit to volunteering regularly we have been fostering for over a year now and I love it.
But that’s not enough for me. I want to use my skills in a way that makes the world better in some way. I want to write in a way that helps others learn and grow. I believe my first book does that and I have many ideas for future books. But I want to do more.
My sister has asked me to partner with her on her website and so I have begun working on that. She is an expert in child behavior and works with children with autism. She’s a licensed BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) with a master’s degree and plenty of knowledge but doesn’t enjoy writing the way I do. So we are combining our skills.
Our first collaborative post I could have used about 10 years ago: Why Time Out Might Be Making Your Child’s Behavior Worse.
