Happiness is When You Realize the Children in Your Life are Good People.
Shady Pines is an award-winning approach to raising good kids, where kindness and caring is a way of life.
Watch the video and see that our popular children’s books and our membership-based website won the Mom’s Choice Gold Award for excellence. The issues that plague kids today are the same ones that our characters deal with – in real time. Our fictional world mirrors your real world. The neighbors of this small Southern town grapple with bullying, too much screen time, self-esteem issues, personal and public safety, families impacted by long and multiple military deployments, and so on.
You want your kids to grow up to be good, honest and decent. But you’re worried a culture increasingly rewarding bullying and bad behavior will keep that from happening.

Shady Pines is a fun place for young kids and their caretakers to get away from the noise. Through our stories embeded with basic life lessons, and activities to underscore them, we throw you a lifeline to sanity. Kids are inspired to make good choices and discover it’s cool to be kind!
