Former forensic interviewer, Jessica Sheehan, whose work involved kids in trauma; talks about The Bella Santini Chronicles.

Suicide is the second leading cause of adolescent death.

Nobody has ever died from feeling their painful feelings. Yet many have died from their chosen method of escaping their painful feelings” — Angela Legh

Parents may not want to acknowledge their children may be suicidal, however . . .

. . .  when you know these seven warning signs, you are better prepared to help your child through difficult situations:

  • Alcohol and drug use
  • Unnecessary risk-taking
  • Obsession with death and dying
  • Loss of interest in usual activities
  • Neglecting one's personal appearance
  • Acting-out behaviors and running away
  • Withdrawal from friends and family members

You and your family deserve a life filled with magic . . .

          Yet life sometimes seems overwhelming and out of control . . .

It's not your fault.


No one taught you how to deal with your emotions; so they swirl out of control. No one gave you tools for moving through stress, anxiety, and overwhelm. These feelings take over and run your life.


You and your family deserve a life filled with magic . . .

And you can have that, with just a few tools for emotional management . . .

In early 2022, the US Surgeon General issued a report on a mental health crisis in America. Kids as young as 6-8 have been in the emergency room for attempting suicide. What lies underneath suicide, substance abuse, self-harming, and eating disorders are painful feelings the individual wants to escape. Unfortunately, many parents are not equipped to deal with their children's emotional breakdowns. We weren't taught how to deal with our own emotions, much less the emotions of our children.

When we provide our children with tools and techniques they can implement to smooth out the wrinkles in their daily life; they thrive. Children will not likely read self-help books, but they will read stories. In today's stressful world, parents don't have time to learn about emotional intelligence, where will they find time to teach it to their kids?

What if teaching your kids emotional intelligence was as easy as reading them a bedtime story, and as a bonus, you learn, too?


By reading the Bella Santini Chronicles, you and your child will be better able to deal with the adversity of life.

I lived through much adversity; and as it is said, what didn't kill me made me stronger. I had an abusive, alcoholic father whose behavior had a major impact on my life. Based on his behavior, my young mind decided that rage was an emotion no one should feel. My judgement of anyone who became enraged did not serve me well in my first marriage, nor in my life. 

A wildfire destroyed our home . . . that was the catalyst for significant change in my life. Over 12 months, I lost my home to fire, left my marriage, quit my job, and moved across the world. During this journey I discovered many tools for overcoming adversity and achieving emotional balance. I now share these tools with children through the power of story; because with this knowledge, they can make better life choices.
