Books by Dr. Shannon

The Confident Kid: How to Create a Confident Kid in an Era of Bullying and Emotional Stress

The Confident Kid is a unique book that addresses the other side of bullying. Most people focus on the bully and not on the kids who would benefit from having the confidence to dismiss the bully. The goal of this book is to help parents raise children that are confident enough to withstand the emotional stress that accompanies school and social environments today.

Pregnancy is not for wimps: The truth about pregnancy nobody tells you

Author Dr Shannon Scanlan bravely shares her personal feelings and experiences about being pregnant. Her opinions are humorous and racey and have an atypical slant as she discusses not enjoying the art of being pregnant. This hysterical and sometimes blunt account of one woman’s struggle with being pregnant is a rare and honest view which gives readers their own permission to feel safe about talking about their own struggles while being pregnant. “Pregnancy is Not for Whimps” should be a mandatory read for all pregnant women who have survived the hard core time served for nine months that it takes to grow a human being.
