I bought this to use with my stepson who is 8 and only interested in video games, I'm hoping that we can do a little less screen time AND personal reflection at the same time. So far I've been impressed with the speed with which it arrived and the quality of the book too!
Excellent Customer Service
My package was shipped, however never arrived (I believe this was to the fault of the delivery service not this company). I emailed customer service to let them know and they were very prompt and professional, and resolved my issue quickly. I now have the journals in my hand and my are they ever beautiful! I can not wait to give them to my children.
Taking the time
It would always seem like I just had too much going on. I kept trying and implemented questions off and on with my preteen. I have loved this since we started. I did have to rush through. We set the same time once a week and went through the journal weekly and wow it spurred some really good discussions and a deeper understanding. It seemed to help her knowing I went through a lot of the same things, but was very careful not to answer things for her but just prompting and taking time. Time is key. She loves this journal and is now doing the teen version in her own and discusses topics with more ease. Raising a healthy, independent adult is the goal.
A Necessary Tool
My 8 year old son has found so much help With this journal. After dealing with blows to his self esteem due to a bad school situation, this journal has helped his self esteem as well as his outlook.
Journals for grandkids
My grand daughters love their journals!! Which made me so happy! We read the first pages together and they were super excited to get started!
