More About Caroline

Caroline grew up in a far away land known as the Isle of Man located in the Irish Sea. She grew up with a younger brother John and older sister Alison. Caroline spent a lot of her youth hearing stories from her Nana about the fairy bridge located on the Isle of Man. 

The fairy bridge brought about a lot of characters from fairies and trolls to witches and goblins. The stories she heard helped when creating the storybook about Kira, The Little Girl Who Was Afraid of Monsters.

Caroline brings us back to her childhood of memories with long family walks, picnics, adventures at the fairy bridge, and creating their very own fairy doors to place in the forest for their own fairies.

The Monster Protection Kit

Caroline Lawless

Kira, The Little Girl Who Was Afraid of Monsters

Kira and Declan

Caroline has two little ones of her own, Kira and Declan who are two and a half years apart. One night, Caroline was putting her children to bed when Kira told her she was scared of the monsters under her bed. Being that as far as Caroline knew, he daughter had not watched any scary movies or seen any scary things but still her daughter was afraid. 

Caroline tried everything to calm her daughter’s fears from showing her under the bed and in the closet, to nightlights and laying their with her daughter until the she fell asleep. The problem was Caroline and her husband Shawn would still hear little feet at 2 am crawling into bed because the monsters woke her up.

Caroline began her search to figure out why her daughter had these fears and just how to solve them. 

Caroline did extensive research to find that the reason looking under the bed and leaving the light on were not helping with the fears is due to the fact her daughter’s fears were in her head. The solutions she had been presenting her daughter were concrete which are useless for abstract fears.

The abstract fears were a healthy sign that her daughter’s imagination was developing and she was learning to think intrinsically. However, the presence of the fear itself was causing exhausting bedtime tantrums and sleepless nights for not only Kira but also Caroline and Shawn. 

After further research, Caroline found that part of solving her daughter’s fear of monsters at bedtime was to present her daughter with an abstract approach. Her daughter needed to gain confidence, independence and use her imagination to solve the fear inside her little mind. 

This is when Caroline began to think back to her childhood where the fairies and stories she learned began flooding back in. That is when Caroline knew what she wanted to do. 

Caroline began to develop a story about a little girl just like her daughter who was afraid of monsters and how the little girl conquered her fears with her very own Monster Protection Kit. The story goes on to explain just how Kira could get rid of her monsters and of all the friends she made along the way. Caroline found that between the story and the kit with specific instructions on how to use the spray, her daughter was now sleeping soundly at night and a much more confident child.

Caroline realized through her own experience the struggles other little ones and parents must be going through with monsters and thus came The Monster Protection Kit. 

The Isle of Man is a tiny Island equal distance between England and Ireland. On a clear day (doesn’t happen often) at the highest point of the Island (Snaefell qualifies as a mountain by 34 feet) it is said that you can see the 6 kingdoms, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Kingdom of Mann and the Kingdom of Heaven.

To my friends and family, I call The Isle of Man ‘My Island’. ‘My Island’ is a picturesque, idyllic, mystical paradise with endless charm and an incredible history. From The Vikings occupation to the Island being used as a prisoner of war camp during Ward War II. Many arcane laws still survive, one great and funny example is the law that permits a true Manxman to shoot, with a bow and arrow, a Scotsman on the beach, wearing a kilt, on New Year’s Day, providing he is standing below a high tide line.

The Isle of Man, ‘My Island’ is a must for mystical adventure seekers to check off their bucket list. There truly is nowhere else like ‘My Island’ in the world.
