We arrived at school, the kids got out the car, and I drove away, marveling that Megan had put into practice what we had discussed. I was so excited and wanted to encourage her to continue being patient with her siblings.
Then my excitement turned pensive. I began to worry that I would forget to praise her after school. I knew I would be distracted getting all the kids where they needed to be, finishing homework, preparing dinner…you know the drill. But I was not going to miss this opportunity to encourage her. I drove home and immediately wrote her a long note of praise and left it on her pillow. Why are indelible words on paper often more powerful than fleeting comments?
This is where our From Me to You journals idea came to life! Today, I am thrilled to share the From Me to You Conversation Journals with you! The journals helped me build a deeper connection with my children. Writing back and forth with my kids has opened a window to their hearts and gave me great peace about no longer missing parenting opportunities. The journals provide a great way for you to share positive words of encouragement your child can read over and over.
And when you use the journals to encourage, it gives your kids courage.
So, make encouraging words and phrases a part of your daily vocabulary, sprinkle them all throughout your journal! Need some help? Check out the Encouraging Words List, Bookmarks and Stickers below to get started!
