A wonderful way to connect with your kids and to help them build confidence in themselves is to introduce them to the art of journaling. Not only is journaling a way to slow down the world and help your kids reflect on their experiences and thoughts, you can use journaling to connect with each other. Next Monday, December 12, journaling expert Sara Marchessault, author of Beyond Pen & Paper: 33 Experiments in Journaling, will tell us how.
In this free, all-day virtual workshop in my Facebook group Confidently Connected Moms, participants will learn:
- The benefits of encouraging kids to keep a journal
- What we know they get out of it
- What we tell them they get out of it
- Strategies to include journaling in daily life
- Using a shared journal to communicate
- Ideas for writing over the holiday break for moms and kids
