I didn’t try to fix it!
Just this morning I told my 6yo that she couldn't do something. She ran off into her room. I gave her a few minutes and then went in to chat. She said, "I am the worst one in the family!" And so I repeated what she said, "you feel you are the worst in the family." And then she said, "I hate myself." So instead of trying to fix or save her, I said, "you feel like you hate yourself...are you sad?" And she opened right up and told me all the other reasons why she felt sad...and I didn’t try to fix it. I just sat with her and told her I feel sad sometimes too. And then we played Go Fish and now she's fine. Thanks to this course, I learned how to hold her feelings and let her work through them without saving her. Thank you!
I very much enjoyed doing the course was so much amazing information I’ll take with me forever.
So many tools up my sleeve
I found big life journal to be full of so many useful resources and ones that my 2 boys actually enjoy completing. I have picked up so many useful hints, strategies and ways of communicating with my children. After completing the master class in negative self talk I now have so many tools up my sleeve to help my boys grow into confident resilient adults. Thank you big life journal.
Thankful for this class
I am so thankful to BLJ. I will keep watching these videos to keep reminding myself of the essence of it all. And to see that I am not alone in my struggle, that many parents out there feel the same way, and that we are all trying ... together we build a generation of better parenting.
A great resource
Big Life Journal Masterclass has been a great resource for me. It has helped me to change my own thinking, and has provided the tools to help my girls become more resilient and confident. I also love the scripts and examples they provide!
