Does your child has difficulties to manage their emotions?- “Jonathan in the Kingdom of Mood Balloons” has the answer!

Tel Aviv, Israel, October 1, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — A new release of the best-selling emotional management book by Netanel Semrik. Find the book on Amazon in English, Arabic, Chinese and Hebrew: http://goo.gl/b1iaai

How many times a day are your children emotionally shaken?
How many times have you seen your child throwing a temper tantrum, frustrated, angry, screaming and shouting?

Everything you have tried doing – shouting, caressing, embracing, yelling, punishing – have only served to send them deeper into their emotional turmoil. Have you experienced your children being sad because they had a fight with a friend? They cry, their sadness threatening to engulf them completely and maybe engulf you a little too.

You are probably familiar with the situation in which your little loved ones are in the middle of a jealousy attack; irritating, snatching, pushing one of their siblings who got a gift or attention, exhibiting little to no self-control. Your children’s emotional mood takes over their entire world and it seems as if nothing can stop the emotional storm. Your children’s eruptive behavior is threatening to control you too. You often feel helpless. Now, please close your eyes and imagine your children are able to manage their emotions and thoughts. Imagine them doing it in an easy, simple and intuitive way. Imagine them feeling so comfortable with themselves that they have no problem sharing their feelings with you.

Is it a Dream?
Is it a reality?
Is it possible?


They will be able to do it once you allow them to float off to the dreamy world of Mood Balloons. Mood Balloons? Yes. Mood Balloons. Mood and balloons. This is a Kingdom in which each thought and emotion is connected to the tops of our heads by a string: A Mood Balloon.

Every balloon has a unique color representing our mood at any given moment. The Mood Balloon expresses the mood and the color of the world our children are experiencing. Our emotional management tool is intended for children between the 3 -6 years old, the dream period of early childhood. During this period they will meet the very violent world of stimulation and screens which is all around us. The Mood Balloons allow the children to deal with this harsh world by means of little, charming childhood images. This happens with the help of a simple and friendly tool. The Children color their Mood Balloons with five easy steps, and as we, the parents would say, start managing their moods:

Observation: the children are asked to observe the colorful balloons. Every color symbolizes an emotion they experience and feel. (Pink – love, blue – sadness, orange -joy, and so on)

Point of view: the Mood Balloon’s color can mold the children’s perception of reality, causing them to experience and believe a story that is not a true story as if it was. The Mood Balloon’s color is the color through which the children perceive people and things in the world. Attention: We ask the children to pay attention to every emotional storm they experience, which calms them down before the mood takes over their world and colors their Mood Balloon.

Breathing: the children win the key to the kingdom of their personal emotions by breathing.

Success: children who have chosen the color of their Mood Balloon and stand behind their choice will not be emotionally shaken the next time a storm passes by. All over the world thousands of children reading and listening to this story are carried away by this magical and imaginary tale. It fortifies their ability to believe in themselves as the person in charge of their own moods.

The book invites you, the parents, to give your children tools which will enable them to conduct a different conversation with the world. A conversation existing in an indirect and colorful space, without clouding the delicate “I” which wakes up, develops and lands in this word in the years of early childhood. Apparently, there is another option to the limited conversation: “How was playschool today?” with the constant, vague answer: “Fun”. You can ask the children what Mood Balloon they met today. You wouldn’t believe the wealth of stories and experiences that will burst out of that conversation.

The Mood Balloon reality becomes an accessible, easy and simple emotional base through which the child’s experiences are easily accessed and converted.

Simel Bey Releases First Children’s Book, Children’s Initiatic Tales: Stories from the Immortal Light

Author, Simel Bey releases his first children’s book, Children’s Initiatic Tales: Stories from the Immortal Light. This fifty-seven page soft-cover features six original tales that stem from traditions of myth, spiritual folklore, and ancient fairy tales. These true, experiential tales of multidimensional nature take readers through emotional themes such as abuse, pain, and child slavery towards divine experiences of redemption and grace.

“The book is written for readers who are passionate about finding themselves, feeling secure and confident, working through trauma and pain, and those who have serious questions about spirituality,” says Bey. “The stories found in the book are based upon real people and experiences I have encountered. I hope it will encourage readers who have experienced pain and trauma with possibilities of how to integrate hope into their lives.”

“As one absorbs the mystery of each story, one is profoundly moved by the depth of Bey’s passion and love for the medium,” says Dr. Mitchell Gibson, MD, and best-selling author of Your Immortal Body of Light, The Miracle Prayer, and Signs of Mental Illness. “Bey’s use of multicultural themes and prose is uplifting and joyous. The genre of magical story has found a brilliant new champion in Simel Bey.”

Bey’s reflective and encouraging language engages readers aged nine through forty with his loving, humorous, magical, yet realistic storytelling. The book holds six illustrations, provided by Holly Ganzalez, Ahmir Mark Lyles and Carnegie Mims.

Ahmir M. Lyles, illustrator of Prince Ahmir and The Amethyst Dragon states “I hope the illustration inspires the reader to be creative. Fantasy, mythology, and even whimsical thinking are very good exercises of creative thought, so I hope that the reader gets the message to always stretch his or her mind when creating art–to include self and to think beyond what’s already been done–what’s already there to be seen or experienced.”

Children’s Initiatic Tales: Stories from The Immortal Light, is a collection of timeless tales that will educate reading youth with universal themes and explore magical concepts that are both uplifting and miraculous. The stories encourage readers to open their minds, persevere through times of hardship and search for hope in various ways.
