“I read What Happens to Love? in one night! It’s such an easy read! Good job! While reading, I have the habit of underlining the most important things. But I realized that I would have to underline almost the entire book, because Stela managed to synthesise in the most accessible form the most important lessons about love.”

“Hello Stela, your book What Every Child Wants is priceless! I have never read a better and more valuable book about children’s education. I was reading your book for a second time today. I’m so impressed of it that I want to tell the whole world about it!”

Desislava Nikolova

“Hello Stela. I bought your book What Every Child Wants and read it all in one go! Your book is amazing! I’ve been wanting to buy one like this for a long time and I would like to thank you for all the advice you’ve given in it, and also for writing it! Soon I’ll buy your second book as well because I’m sure it’s just as interesting.”

What Every Child Wants is a book, which is not only extremely easy to ready, but it’s engraved in the mind of the reader and heals your hurt soul because it reaches its finest strings in a very gentle way… With much love and gratitude, to Stela Daskalova.”

“This book will make you listen to your heart…” The first thing that each of us wants is our children to be healthy! But we do not realize how we ourselves are ruining their health! And this has been happening since the human race appeared on this planet. If there were no parents, maybe there wouldn’t be any psychotherapists, either. This doesn’t mean that we do not love our children. However, we make mistakes because of insufficient knowledge and unawareness! Dear parent, this book will make you reconsider some things! It will help you realize that if you listen to your heart, you will make fewer mistakes. It will also give you plenty of valuable pieces of advice on how to prevent the future problems of your children by having the right attitude to them in their childhood years. There are no perfect parents who never make mistakes! But it is wonderful that the number of conscious parents is constantly growing and that they understand how even the smallest details in parents’ attitude to their children has a huge influence on the children’s future. If you read this book with your heart, you will be one of these conscious parents! Madlen Alghafari

“Contrary to “reader’s ethics”, I will give away what happens at the end of the book What Happens to Love?. Love becomes freed from the chains of our own, formerly planted, wrong beliefs. Love can be a prisoner of our beliefs, and just like a bird, it shares with us its wings. We always choose ourselves.

This book leaves us with two choices – should I take the responsibility over my own happiness (we always want everything to depend on us, right? well it depends!) or continue passively wallowing in sadness (it gets old!)? It’s your choice, reader. You have the key, and you have the door too!

Thank you for the book!”

“For me, the book What Every Child Wants is a bible for parents and should be present in every home, like a textbook, studied over and over again. When my husband read it, he told all our friends with kids to read it. I also recommended it in my daughter’s kindergarten but was pleasantly surprised to see that “Everything begins with childhood” was already present on the shelf of the library.”

Reading What Happens to Love by Stela Daskalova has been a fascinating experience, because in a single book she has married two seemingly incompatible approaches. On the one hand, the author offers a very pragmatic and indeed, rationally structured way to view love and solve love tangles. On the other hand – and quite fortunately, this rationalization has not killed the romanticism and emotionality that have to do with this greatest creative power of the universe. Reading her narrative, I have to admit I enjoyed very much her tone of voice – there is this dialogue quality about it, and one really precious thing – plenty of warmth in the way the she addresses the audience. In the meantime, at certain points the warm and unobtrusive quality of her style changes, as emotions gather momentum and transform into truly passionate discourse. This special duality of the book by Stela Daskalova appeals to me very much and it also makes its messages universal.

The book What happens to love came to me in a very hard moment in my life. I read it in the blink of an eye only in two nights and it became my favorite. It’s amazing! A treasure! Recommended it to many people!

Hello!

I read your book What happens to love and for the first time in a while a Bulgarian author intrigued me. It’s written psychologically yet at the same time it’s intriguing. Are you a psychologist by any chance? You explained the traps of love very well. It’s as if I opened my eyes for things I never paid attention to. I’m 29 years old, not yet married. I’m still looking for love or maybe waiting to meet it. And you helped me feel less guilty that I’m one of the women not pursuing marriage as a goal, and simply want to meet the right person… without having to abide by my biological clock or anything like that. Thank you for the wonderful book that you have written, which energized me with only positive energy.

What Every Child Wants is a book which projects into our hearts the movie of our own life. Just like on a movie reel, we can clearly see the “wrong models” and “useless cliches” from our own childhoods and protect our children from them. This is a book, most importantly for learning ourselves, and about the ability to befriend and inspire our own children! What Every Child Wants – one of the most priceless teachers of life!”

This is a book about love, written with love. Book that teaches us how to love ourselves, life and others. A book that helps us discover beliefs that prevent us from being happy. Kamelia Georgieva

“A wonderful book, which helped me grow as a parent, it helped me with valuable advice, which I use up until this day for raising our three daughters.” Valdi Subev

“Stela Daskalova’s books made me think about things I’ve never paid attention to before. Some books you read out of curiosity, but with hers it’s like you’re having a conversation with your own self. They provoke you to search and find answers of simple things you once thought were too complicated.” Krasimir Dukov

“Dear Stela, I wholeheartedly thank you for the books you have written. As you read them, you are filled with harmony, ease, enlightenment, inspiration, faith and strength. Your books are of the kind that belong to a special place in my library and to which I reach out in need, because they can be a trustworthy compass that I know will lead me in the right direction.” Gabriela Metodieva

”You are my inspiration…” Stela, I want to say first that you are my inspiration, even without you knowing it. As I have always stated, the books find me by themselves when I am ready for them. A year ago, totally by accident, when my son was just two months old, a friend of mine gave me your book What Every Child Wants and I read it at one go…all that you had written I felt like something that was coming from my own heart! It helped me realize what I wanted to give to my child and what I should be careful about! Recently I have read your second book – What Happens to Love. Thank you for coming into my life through your books, for your worldview and for writing right from your soul! I am looking forward to reading your third book! I can’t wait!

While I was reading the book What Every Child Wants, I suddenly felt the strong desire to share it with all my friends who have already become parents or are going to be in the future. In the book I found the wise mother I have always wanted to have. Wise, tender and loving. A mother who is asking herself questions and is searching for ways to become more and more conscious, to develop and grow. In order to be a happy woman. And a happy mother. To a happy child…Because children learn from the personal example of their parents. The book What Every Child Wants and its sequel Every Child Is a Hero are wonderful guides of every mother and every father on their path to building a healthy, truly close and wise relationship with their children. After some time I came across Stela’s book What Happens to Love? in a moment when I was feeling sad and confused after a hard situation in the relationship I had at that time. I was walking around the books in a bookshop, trying to put my thoughts in order and soothe my sad heart when my eyes fell upon What Happens to Love?. This was one of the questions I was asking myself at that moment: What is happening to my love?. I opened the book to a random page and what I read there made me feel a wonderful wave of warmth as I discovered once again that there are no coincidences in life – the things written on that page gave me the exact guidance I needed especially for my situation at that time. I felt with my soul that I wanted to read the whole book. I had a sudden feeling of calmness and I went to the cashier to buy the book. I found on the pages of What Happens to Love? the exact same tenderness as in the other books written by Stela which I had already read. And I also found in the book the support and understanding that we are looking for in a close friend that fill our hearts with warmth and make us feel love. And we need love so much! Love as a mindset and an attitude to the world, and love for ourselves. This is what Stela gives with her books – pure, wonderful love and tenderness while she is exploring the difficult questions holistically – from different points of view, in order to help us see better the whole picture of our relations. In order to help us take our decisions from the position of sincerity, truth, love and harmony.

Mariya Dimitrova

While reading Stela’s books, I feel as if my grandmother is hugging me. A sense of security, that you can say whatever you want, cry as much as you like, share even your worst thoughts and feelings, and still feel accepted, loved, understood, forgiven and comforted. I have cried so many times while reading and rereading her books. After that I feel refreshed and new, as if with a clear hard drive, which I can start filling up with more care and love towards what I am putting in…

We all know that being a parent is not easy. Parenthood is an art that unfortunately not many people are good enough at. And while we all have the same or similar problems with our children and our relationship with them, there are hardly any people who are there to understand you and help you with adequate advice on how to deal with those problems. I was impressed with how easy and down to earth everything in the book was explained. My husband read it and told all my friends with children to read it. I gave the same advice to the staff in the kindergarten my daughter started visiting, and I was happy to understand that the book was already on the shelf of our director’s cabinet and was read by her long ago. I call this book a “parental bible” that must be present in every home, a textbook that has to be re-read every now and then. I wish there were more books exactly like this one and more moms and dads reading them, and I wish there were more people exactly like Stela. I will always be grateful to her for what she has taught me. I do believe this book has made us all better parents. Yana Moiseeva

“Hello, Stela! I just read your book What happens to love? and I wanted to congratulate you. It’s wonderful. This is my new favorite book. After everything I have learned about myself and the world in the past year, this book appeared to me as the the most eloquent and simple revision of all the things I have learned. Aware people like you, living outside the matrix, inspire and push the world forwards. Thanks to people like you, I grow and evolve.

Thank you!”
