A growth mindset journal for children
Equip your children with skills they need to live their dreams.
What is the Big Life Journal?
As a parent, you want your kids to be confident and resilient with high self-esteem and ambition to achieve great things in life. You want them to have a positive outlook on life and try new things. And at the same time, you don't want them to be afraid of making a mistake or think they "can't do" before they even try.
We get it. We are parents too. And we created the Big Life Journal for our son Mikey so that he can grow up to be a positive, resilient, confident human being who strives to achieve great things in life. We're sharing this journal with you with the great hope that it will positively impact your kids' lives too.

CURIOUS WHAT CHILDREN THINK OF THE JOURNAL?
The Big Life Journal is the perfect guidebook for parents to learn teaching points, and for kids to put them in action.
The Big Life Journal is perfect for children of all ages - teaching them to dream big, talk about their feelings and chronicle what's going on in their life, one fun activity at a time
As a 5th grade special education teacher, this journal is the perfect guidebook to help navigate my students to be more confident learners.
Kids learn about persistence, resilience, self-belief, positivity, and much more
Growth Mindset Can Transform Your Child
With a growth mindset, kids are empowered because they realize they're in charge of their own intelligence and performance.
They stop stressing about mistakes and not being perfect, begin enjoying the process of learning, and are more open to feedback. Phrases like "I can't do this" or "I am not good at this" become things of the past. They start speaking a different language, like:
"I am learning!"
"I can always improve!"
"I try hard and I get better!"
Sounds amazing, doesn't it? Growth mindset can do wonders for kids.

The Big Life Journal teaches character building, builds relationships and inspires children to have a larger vision.
I passionately love this journal. It's such a beautiful and meaningful way to create lasting memories and a growth mindset for your tiny human!
We've been captivated by the sweet images and the motivational quotes. We LOVE our journal and can't wait to open it each week!
The journal is a connection tool
Sometimes we get caught up in the routines (homework, dinner, bath, etc.) and there's no time for deep, meaningful conversations about life, the world, and the important things in life.
Big Life Journal creates time for you to sit together with your child and really communicate.
A child chooses a Journal Buddy (a parent or a grandparent) to share the journal with. Together with a Journal Buddy, they embark on the journey of exploring life-changing concepts like optimism, persistence, and embracing failure.
