Welcome to Mogul Moms Club blog. We are on a mission to help busy moms find work-life balance, start and run a business as a family and build their dream legacy. In this week's blog post, we will discuss bedtime stories and how they can be used as an avenue to reinforce values.
But before I get into the discussion, let me first introduce myself for the first-time visitors. My name is Tiffany Simpson and I am a Certified Master Life Coach. My journey began after my son was diagnosed with autism. It was during this challenge that I taught myself to create computer games and mobile apps to help him overcome challenges with his speech and social skills. The results were amazing.
Today my son, Jayden Simpson is 11 years old and has his own business as an animator. He also teaches other children like himself to create animations using Stick Nodes Pro and Adobe Animate CC. Check out the video below of his first time creating an animation in Adobe Animate CC.

So, as I had mentioned before. I wanted to discuss bedtime stories and how it can be used as an avenue to reinforce your family values. According to Wikipedia, a bedtime story is a traditional form of storytelling, where a story is told to a child at bedtime to prepare the child for sleep. The bedtime story has long been considered "a definite institution in many families". Reading bedtime stories yields multiple benefits for parents and children alike.
One of the techniques I had used with my son, when he was a toddler was to implement the tradition of reading him bedtime stories . However, instead of using traditional story books, I would create my own book app. The book app would include a story that was narrated. The story also included my son's name. It was personalized and more importantly, it included a lesson I wanted to reinforce in our home.
Creating my own personalized bedtime stories, gave me an avenue through which I was able to shape my son's behavioral patterns. If you could remember, I mentioned earlier in the introduction that my son was diagnosed with autism at age 3. His speech was not developing and he would throw these wild tantrums whenever he was hungry or needed anything.
After I created a few apps to help with his speech development, I noticed that some of the behavioral patterns remained. These were survival mechanisms. I will go into details in another blog post about how children form negative coping mechanisms to mask lack of confidence. But in this blog post, I want to keep the focus on using bedtime stories as a way to shape their values from a young age.
How I Used Personalized Book Apps To Improve Communication
- Because the book apps were narrated, it provided a second reference for the values introduced in the bedtime stories. No, it wasn't mommy who said it. This was a very powerful technique in creating a point of reference for all future communications with my son. There are many, more effective ways of communicating with a toddler than the direct approach, which only leaves the door open for resistance or dismissal.
- Because the stories include his name, it was very personal to him and helped him to better relate to the values in the stories and even adopt them as his own.
- Because the book apps were created from scratch, I was able to effectively censor the content being introduced in my home. It was an avenue for conflict resolution, changing behavioral patterns and mediating on behalf of myself. These book apps gave me a voice.
Controlling the Narrative with Personalized Bedtime Stories Book Apps
One of the first products I am offering to non-members of the Mogul Moms Club, is the personalized bedtime stories book apps. It has been a very effective method in helping our moms to develop positive behavioral patters in their toddlers.
Personalized book apps allow you to control the narrative of each story to ensure that you are enforcing the value you want in your home. It also gives you the power to create stories that are relevant and applicable to the challenges you are faced with on a day to day or monthly basis.
As part of our Mogul Moms Curriculum, we assess each month and look at the issues that need to be addressed in the home and we devise a strategy to address the problems based on the child's learning style and temperament.
Just imagine, the kids had a fight today and then BOOM! Just like that you have a bedtime story that helps you to resolve that conflict. Your children will be impressed and amazed at how these stories just line up with their current circumstances. And of course, the app book even narrates their name. How cool would that be?
My mission as a Master Life Coach, is to help my students overcome seemingly impossible challenges. My passion is creating solutions that help to simplify the process of achieving those results. So as part of our upcoming membership drive, I am offering non-members a chance to get their hands on our Mogul Mom's Bedtime Stories, personalized to suite your individual needs.
I have been coaching moms for over two years now and the problem is always the same. There is a disconnect in reinforcing values in the home, simply because moms do not have the voice or tools to effectively reinforce values.
Screaming, shouting and pulling hairs have never solved any problems in the home. Though sometimes it is a very effective coping mechanism :). Today, I am here to tell you, there are other ways of handling the day to day hustle of effectively managing your day so you can get more done. The personalized book app is just one of them. Here is a video walk through of how the book apps work. I am doing a demonstration on my computer, but you can download this example directly from the Amazon app store.
These personalized book apps are only available to members of the Mogul Moms Club. But, for a limited time, we are offering our Bedtime Stories Series to non-members to offer just a taste of what members of the Mogul Moms Club enjoy. In fact, we are offering the first 30 non-members, 30% off their purchase first purchase of our personalized book apps.
