Connecting with Kids in a Disconnected World
ABOUT CONNECTING WITH KIDS IN A DISCONNECTED WORLD
For the last thirty years, award-winning children’s book author Trevor Romain has been working with children from all walks of life. In the last decade alone, he has presented to over a million children across the globe. Connecting With Kids in a Disconnected World is the culmination of Trevor’s life-long work and his mission to help kids become happier, healthier and more confident.
The book is filled with practical, proven strategies, effective tools, and inspiring stories designed to help adults shape and improve connections with kids.
Based on his personal experience while working with terminally ill children, former child soldiers, children in orphanages, military children, foster children and at-risk children, Trevor shares ideas, case histories and successful techniques to help adults connect with kids, even under the most stressful and trying conditions.
ABOUT TREVOR ROMAIN
Trevor has been speaking to children and working with children for over 30 years. He realized he had a natural ability to connect with children when he volunteered to visit terminally ill children at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin. He quickly became known as the Doctor of Mischief, meaning he drove the kids crazy with his jokes and pranks, but at the same time giving them a trusting ear and hope for the future, whatever the future held. It was during these hospital visits that Trevor realized that adults sometimes tell children what they think they need to hear, instead of listening to what they are asking for.
It was with this knowledge that Trevor wrote his series of best-selling self-help children's books. Some of them include, How To Do Homework Without Throwing Up, Bullies Are a Pain in the Brain, Cliques, Phonies, and Other Baloney, and What On Earth Do You Do When Someone Dies. Trevor has the ability to tackle some tough topics while keeping kids engaged with humor.
The success of these books led to the formation of The Trevor Romain Company. The company produced an award-winning series of animated DVDs based on these books. The series has run on PBS, and the DVDs are used in schools all across the country. The Trevor Romain Company then saw the need for a bullying curriculum that is integrated into the classroom, something that hadn’t been done before.
Having books, DVDs, and a true educational component has led to many partnerships for Trevor and The Trevor Romain Company. Trevor has now worked with former child soldiers in Africa, in orphanages in Africa, and most recently teamed up with the USO to speak to kids on military bases. Trevor has spoken to almost 250,000 military kids in 16 different countries.
