Transformation ahead

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.

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.
