On November 24, 2018, I opened my Facebook page to find I was tagged in a post. I clicked to see a beautiful photo of eight-year-old Lindsay St. Peter, sitting comfortably in a chair, covered partially by a blanket. Nestled carefully in her arm and tucked under the blanket, was Precious Pinata™ His cute little head with colorful horns and big smile, peeped above the cover.
Lindsay’s Mother, Kristen Banfield wrote, “Instant Piñata LOVE! I asked Lindsay what’s in her stuffing… beautiful to hear her list… caring, intelligent, kind, creative, smart and loving. We went through the colours in the book with Precious’ stuffing and she immediately agreed with the connections. Can’t wait to dive into more tomorrow!”
Joy overcame me, reading Kristen’s post. Months of planning, writing, and preparation came to fruition—Precious Pinata™ was impacting a child’s life.
My goal is to place Precious Pinata™ What’s in Your Child’s Stuffing? guidebook in the hands of parents, educators and health care professionals. I envision thousands of children holding Precious Pinata™, learning about the significance of the seven colorful fluffy balls in his zippered belly. Precious’ Knowledge-Stuffing is world-exclusive and a Pinata-Awesome method to teach kids about safety, mental health, relationships, and realistic life skills.
Precious Pinata was born from my best-selling adult book: The Pinata Theory™ What’s in Your Stuffing? Working through childhood adversity, and having an interest in psychology, addiction and mental health, were the conduits behind my life-altering theory.
I needed to discover the link between childhood trauma and future disease. Through research and experience, it was evident, Human-Made-Stuffing (life experiences from multiple human sources) programmed each of us, like a computer.
Working in policing for 24 years, immersed me in the ugly truth about the cyclical challenges of emotionally and psychologically damaged people, who never received intervention or help for their personal abuses as children.
They in turn, as parents, lovers or foes, pass their torch of automatic and subconsciously driven unhealthy traits, abuses and distorted beliefs, to innocent Pinata Cubs (kids), relatives, or society.
I knew there needed to be a relatable method to teach young children about life, closing the gap on childhood trauma and/or parental disconnection. Precious Pinata™ is this tool.
Precious needs no batteries or electricity. He works his Pinata-Magic, with the help of an adult presenting his book to a child. The colorful fluffy balls in Precious’ belly, are a visual and touchable aid, relating the effects of healthy and unhealthy life experiences, expanded as topics in his book. Precious is cute, colorful and huggable, with an infectious smile…creating an instant bond with kids.
Precious covers important topics: Bullying, Racism/Diversity, Relationships, Health, Emotions, Mental Health, Teamwork, Team 911, Green Earth, Healthy Activities, and more.
Precious tackles the Mammoth Pinata in the room…sexual abuse. Children learn about private body parts, familiar people acting strange, examples of odd behavior, manipulation tactics used by predators, what to do to escape harm, and most importantly, to tell an adult right away.
