Do you ever have a lot of thoughts and feelings that you want to write down?  We feel  MyValues journal is a special place where you can write about anything that is important to you. It can be a place to express your thoughts and feelings, to set goals, and to reflect on your experiences.

Why we feel  MyValues journal is important for kids?

MyValues journals can be helpful for kids of all ages, but they can be especially helpful for young kids who are still learning about themselves and the world around them. Here are some of the reasons why a values based journal can be so important for kids:

  • They can help kids develop their self-awareness. When kids write about their thoughts and feelings, they start to learn more about themselves. They start to understand what they are good at, what they are not so good at, and what is important to them.
  • They can help kids set goals. When kids write about their dreams and aspirations, they start to think about what they want to achieve in life. This can help them set goals and to make a plan for achieving them.
  • They can help kids reflect on their experiences. When kids write about their experiences, they start to learn from them. They start to understand what they did well, what they could have done better, and how they can use their experiences to make better decisions in the future.
