Why is this book series important?
Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for young adults. The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Agency (SAMHSA) states, the causes of suicide are complex and determined by multiple combinations of factors, such as mental illness, substance abuse, painful losses, exposure to violence, and social isolation. Social isolation has significantly increased under the Covid-19 lockdown. Underneath all of these issues are emotions with which the teens are unable to cope.
The Bella Santini Chronicles, a fairytale series aimed at ages 8-12, teaches children the importance of processing their emotions and gives them tools for emotional well-being. The book series delves into complex topics, such as child abandonment, bullying, sibling rivalry, and good vs. evil. Readers build emotional muscle and set a path of emotional well-being that allows them to navigate the difficult teen years without seeing suicide as a solution to their problems.
A concerned parent may ask, “How can a little fairytale book impact the teen suicide rate?” This is a valid question. As stated above, many of the factors leading to suicide are underscored by the inability to process emotions. Violence and isolation bring up strong feelings that can cause a teen to seek relief from their pain. Substance abuse or suicide are some of the escape methods chosen to relieve pain.
These books plant seeds; how to process their emotions, how to lift out of victim mentality, and how to find value in themselves; seeds planted before the children reach their teen years. The purpose behind these books is to provide children with an emotional well-being platform of balance and resilience that helps them navigate the teen years’ sometimes difficult terrain.
