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!
This is the third time i’ve bought something from Mutha Hood as a gift, and i still love receiving the packages just as much each time. Beautifully wrapped and thoughtful gifts!
I can’t recommend this highly enough. We’re just finishing the first ‘Happy Self’ journal and my daughter asked for the ‘special red one for girls!’ when I showed her the Strong Girls Club version. It’s beautiful to hear her thoughts on each day and talk about the ups and downs. She’s not quite 5 years old but despite the young age, it still works brilliantly with me writing for her (she ALWAYS draws the emojis though!).
I can’t imagine not having this journal in our lives now and I imagine my daughter will cherish it for years to come.
Added bonus: the gorgeous wrapping this journal arrived in! Thank you so much! :)
Cici who is 10 says it's really good because Instead of a journal you have to do everyday it's fun and something you can just do when you like .
