Hi everyone!
Welcome to my Patreon page!

My name is Roya Dedeaux (rhymes with Play-doh) and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Southern California.

I want to first and foremost thank you for being here. My mission in life is to help people live more gamefully (curiosity, resourcefulness, optimism!) as individuals and as parents, and it's through your patronage that I can do that. 

Here's a little about me...
My background and my Bachelor's degree are in Recreation and Leisure Studies from CSULB, where I also teach classes on the importance of recreation and play! Along the way I also received my Master's in Counseling, and now have a private practice as a therapist in Southern California. I also provide distance coaching for homeschoolers.

I believe strrooooonnngly in the importance and power of play for all ages, and I have spent the majority of my personal and professional life inspiring others to become more playful. I do this in my practice, I do this as a teacher, I do this through pursuing my own passions (all things YARN!), and I am currently doing this through writing a parenting book!

I specialize in using art in my therapy practice, and I have spent most of my life crocheting, knitting, making journals, collaging, and following other artistic pursuits. I've got a monthly yarn subscription business (www.yarnofthemonth.com), and sell earrings online (royaboya.etsy.com), I'm a regular columnist in The Homeschooler magazine (http://www.hsc.org/magazine.html), and I'm the author of “Protect Their Passions” a workbook with practical exercises to help work parents through emotional and logistical barriers to connecting more with their children (www.royadedeaux.com).

So that last part is important, because it's been pretty well received - and I am now starting the process of expanding the workbook to a book with BIG IDEAS about parenting, play, and protecting children's passions.

If you have been helped along the way by my comments on many of the facebook groups I admins/posts on, by my talks at conferences, or by my social media posts, you might consider helping by becoming a Patron so that this book can have a wider reach. We all want a society where we break cycles of hurt, shame, and guilt - a place where kids can nurture their creativity and curiosity. This book is designed to help parents do just that - to protect their children's passions, and ultimately help protect the world.


Another note:

I wanted to share with you what your funding turns into:
time.
It turns into time.

Time to write, time to research, time to travel to conferences, time to put together graphics for blog posts and articles, time to self-publish, time to create cover art... my children require the watching and the watchers require the monies. Your patronage means I can attend to my calling, and THANK YOU for that.
