Great journal for young kids!

My nine-year-old received this for her birthday and loved it so much we gave it to a friend for her birthday as well. My daughter spent time every night, filling it out, and loved every minute of it. I love the intentionality of it, and I help it helps her to process her day. She’s a big emotion, kid, and it helped me also to understand when she shared with me what she wrote how her day actually went. I appreciate the thoughtfulness of this journal and the critical thinking creates for small children

Love this journal for nighttime use!

I love this nighttime practice with my 7-year-old! We are halfway through our first journal, and both of us are benefitting from the discussions that stem from the journaling prompts!

Big life Jornal ROCKS!

I have given a journal to each of my nurture students and they love them, it’s opened up many conversations, they love colouring the doodles - a mindful activity) and we have flourish time each day so they have time to write,reflect and process their emotions. They love them! Thank you for all you do to help me to help them P.S the posters are very eye catching - I used them to teach resilience, growth mindset and gratitude

Helping my child blossom

Bought this for kiddo… she was hesitant but I see her in morning breakfast time doodling and answering questions about herself. This book gives us parents such amazing insight and love seeing her answers about “herself”. Definitely helping her blossom and although intrinsically shy, she’s blossoming into a confident and cautiously bold, yet always kind and proper young human.

Great Buy!

My 7year old often has big feelings, which is lovely; but we needed to find a way to help her express them in a way that doesn't overwhelm her. This book has helped us both pause and be more thoughtful about how we express our feelings while also embracing positive self talk. My daughter will remind me that we have to leave a few minutes between bedtime routine and bedtime in order to complete her journal pages for that day.

The Big Life Journal - Daily Edition features activities based on the latest research on growth mindset, brain plasticity, positive psychology, and child development.

Download the research behind the journal HERE.

Here are the main themes included:


Dr. Carol Dweck's research has proven children who develop a growth mindset are more equipped to face challenges. They embrace failures, are eager to try new things, and keep trying until they succeed.


Science shows children who express their emotions in a healthy and positive way are more resilient. Resilient children are braver, more curious, and more adaptable.


Children who show gratitude are happier, less impulsive, and have better relationships with others. Research shows daily gratitude practice can have a profound impact on your child’s physical and emotional health.


Children who learn to be kind are happier and more successful. Teaching children kindness also reduces bullying, helps them improve friendships, and increases their well-being.


Teaching children to love themselves helps build their self-esteem and creates the foundation for lifelong success and happiness.

How does the Big Life Journal - Daily Edition differ from the Big Life Journal — Original?

The Big Life Journal — Daily Edition is independent of the Big Life Journal — Original (either the 1st or the 2nd editions). It can be a great next step if your child already completed the original journals (although completing the original journals is not necessary before working on the Daily Edition).

The Daily Edition is designed to be completed by a child on their own every day (it’s totally okay to skip a day or more as the journal is NOT dated).

Is this journal dated?

It’s not dated.

How long will the journal last?

The journal will last three months if completed every day. When finished your child can get another Daily Edition and complete it again since the journal is not dated and it’s very important to keep the daily practice going.

What age range is this journal for?

We recommend this journal for ages 6-11. For older children, we recommend the Big Life Journal - Tween/Teen Edition.
