This tool is exactly what I was looking for to help me teach my kids what they're capable of. Being a parent who was never taught in my childhood what my possibilities are and more importantly, to love myself, accept what is, and to know I have the power to create the life I want, I'm still learning this myself! So I wasn't sure how to go about teaching this to my kids. I wanted to at least plant a seed. The Big Life Journal is more than a seed...it's more like a whole field of seeds!! It opens the doors to communication between my kids and me, it allows me to be open about my own life and struggles...and that...is priceless!! I also love that there's emails with free printables and valuable information every week!
I bought this journal for my twelve year old son and have found it to be a great resource. The art work is excellent and the material is presented in such a way that it isn't intimidating or simplistic. I can't say enough good things and have recommended it to friends.
We are loving the journal - Alex really enjoyed all the quotes and inspiring themes throughout. He flicked through it & found some favourites & has gone back to look slowly - and is now beginning to add in some of his own thoughts & feelings - it is wonderful to have something like this for that bit older age group as this really impressionable group is too often overlooked - thank you BIG LIFE JOURNAL
This is a great age-appropriate journal for teens and tweens!
Believing in Yourself!
I have long believed that one the greatest obstacle for children is understanding their own strengths. As a long time teacher, I am tremendously grateful for the Big Life Journal. I have received numerous inquiries and compliments regarding the positive impact of the journal activities and conversation starters.
