Nathan Ssewaali has taken his infant and child mental health advocacy a notch higher with the release of “Lola And The Emotions Carousel.” The author tries to teach readers, especially young boys and girls, ways of managing their emotions, using a lady and her experiences in life as case study.
The author got interested in learning more about parent and child development after having a baby boy with his wife, having been a young immigrant father. “I wanted to be the best dad for my kids. I also wanted to learn more about kids mental health and also to be able to raise my boy in the most appropriate way or manner.” – Nathan Ssewaali.
Emotional intelligence remains one of the most important skills for every individual. Over the years, several resources have been developed by a plethora of experts to teach the art to as many people as possible. However, very little has been achieved in this aspect, especially as many of such resources are seemingly abstract, making it difficult for the audience to relate with and put into practice. Consequently, Nathan aims to change this narrative by creating a relatable story and teaching people how to manage their emotions, irrespective of happenings around them, with the release of “Lola And The Emotions Carousel.”
“Lola And The Emotions Carousel” is a short, interesting story of young Lola and her rollercoaster experience that includes fear, joy, and sadness. The book chronicles how she explores her feelings and got through each day with the help of her loving grandmother, ultimately giving her a better understanding of life and how to manage her emotions.
Nathan Ssewaali has leveraged his diverse experience as a parent, racial justice advocate and infant and child mental health professional working with different non-governmental organizations and government children’s protection agencies in Canada, Uganda and all over the world to curate the fantastic, compelling story.
