Meet Haitian-American author Rose St. Paul, a University of Florida alumna who is currently the owner-operator of Belle Events International, LLC. Inspired by her previous occupation as an Early Childhood Education Consultant, as well as the development of her nieces, nephews, and children, she created Mari Lou, the star character of her children’s book series titled “The Adventures of Mari Lou”.
Growing up, her parents, both Haitian immigrants, were strict and solely used the “because I said so” approach when dealing with their children. Years later, while adopting that same approach, Rose realized her “old school” child rearing strategy had to be met with some modification.
Transitioning to providing her children explanations proved to be beneficial for encouraging positive behaviors. Utilizing that foundational element, “The Adventures of Mari Lou” tackles serious topics such as healthy eating, bullying, and self-esteem with a softer undertone, creating an environment that makes it easier for discussion. The first book of the series, “No Junk Food Zone” is now available for purchase.
