Short Summary for General Public:

Mom Says, Dad Says, Nat Says: Other
A beautifully illustrated book for adults and kids who have felt different for any reason. Drawing from both the east and west, this heartwarming tale shows us how to overcome the ‘us’ vs. ‘them’ mentality through surprising coping strategies to counter bullying effects.


Short Summary for Stress Children & Bullying Effects:

 

Mom Says, Dad Says, Nat Says: Other
This entertaining illustrated health series reads much like St. Exupery’s The Little Prince, but with a different message. Other is about the art of being different, what we wished our Mom had told us, what our Dad may not have known, and what our own head and heart might still have difficulty grasping. Unless, like the characters in the book, your Mom has a European ‘savoir vivre’ that is larger than life, your Dad is a Zen Japanese Harvard trained psychiatrist on health, and you like the American author Nat, have spent years trying to integrate both your mom’s heart and your dad’s head.  A must to read as your child follows his or her heart.  Effective in countering unwanted bullying effects.


Short Summary for Expats, Expat, Expatriates:

 

Mom Says, Dad Says, Nat Says: Other
Mom Says, Dad Says, Nat Says: Other will be treasured by the international crowd who have not always fit neatly into any one category. Adults who have traveled, married a foreigner, lived the life of an ex-pat or grown up bi-culturally will be memorably moved by the coping strategies of the tri-cultural penguin.


Short Summary for Happa, Ameriasian, Nisei, Eurasian:

 

Mom Says, Dad Says, Nat Says: Other
Dad is Japanese. Mom is French. Nat, she is a Happa, Ameriasian, Nisei, Eurasian or more simply put an ‘Other’. This heartwarming entertaining book shows us how to enjoy growing up as an ‘Other.’ Through surprising and highly effective strategies Nat shows us how to enjoy an identity crisis, a different physical appearance (Nat had spent hours pinching her nose to make it less flat with little success), language (looking Japanese did not mean Nat spoke it fluently), a strange sounding name, and how to deal with racism from all ethnic groups including your own — if you are lucky enough that such a category exists.  A must to counter bullying effects and cope with stress children experience as they define and re-define their identity.


Short Summary for Multiracial, Bi-cultural, Multicultural:

 

Mom Says, Dad Says, Nat Says: Other
In addition to all the normal identity crisis and pressure that kids and adults go through growing up, this beautiful and heartwarming book helps multiracial kids deal with their differences including their physical appearance, language, a strange sounding name, identity, and how one deals with racism from all ethnic groups including ones own -all with great wit, humor, and surprising effectiveness.


Short Summary for Children & Parents ‘Because Growing up is Difficult’:

 

Mom Says, Dad Says, Nat Says: Other
“Mom says its cute to be small: Dad says Napoleon was small. But none of that helped.” This book is for Mom, Dad and children who grow up feeling that they are a little different – be it too small, tall, big, or some other ‘label’ that makes them stand out from the crowd. The book reads much like the St. Exupery’s The Little Prince, but is about optimal health, what we wished our Mom had told us, what our Dad may not have known, and what our own head and heart will enjoy discovering over and over.  A must to counter bullying effects and cope with stress children experience with peers.


Short Summary for Psychology and Mental Health, Stress Children, Bullying Effects:

 

Mom Says, Dad Says, Nat Says: Other
This heartwarming illustrated book is for busy adults and kids who have felt picked on for being different (and who hasn’t), or constrained by a label (their own or someone else’s). Child psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and teachers will also get a lift from its freshness. Through the surprising coping strategies in the book, being different, can suddenly become a formidable stepping-stone to health.
