Notes from Gemma: I fill this out every day with Big Red. She's 7 years old and I've found that by scribing for her it gives us an opportunity to both talk about events during the day and to offer options has to how to navigate them in future. It's a chance for us to connect and to discuss her emotions. Since making the journal a part of our evening routine I've noticed a dramatic improvement in Big Red's approach to frustrations and experiences that she would perhaps find challenging. It's incredible how the 'top three' things help her to share the happy, and that by picking an emoji of the day we also touch on the sad. It's important for her emotional development that we discuss both, and I love that by filling out the pages I get more from her than 'it was okay,' when I ask about her day at school. I've also become very aware of how much more we now cuddle; by filling it in, it's ensured that safeguarded mother/daughter time is an integral part of our day. In all I LOVE THIS JOURNAL and I can't describe how thrilled I am to be able to collaborate with The HappySelf Journal on this special edition!
Gorgeous book! My daughter loves it. Lovely quality.
My daughter started reception recently and was saving up all of her worries until pick up. Doing the journal before bed gives her time and space to discuss and reflect on her day. I've noticed that she takes more pleasure in remembering the positives now and she's happier in herself at school too.
