The relationship we have with our children are pretty much the most important of their lives. How we relate to them will shape how they relate to people for the rest of their lives.
But so many times we ignore this crucial part of parenting. Focusing on other aspects, which are important, but maybe don’t have the same far-reaching effects. There’s where the Mommy and Me Journal comes in!
Using a Mommy and Me Journal (or Daddy) is an easy and effective way to build a strong relationship with your child and build their trust. It sounds too good to be true, but it really is simple and really does have a massive effect!
What is a Mommy and Me Journal?
To put it simply it is a Mommy and Me Journal or notebook that you write messages to each other in.
Every day (or as often as you can) you write a little message to your child in their Mommy and Me Journal. Then leave it somewhere they will see it – like on their bed, and ask them to write a note back to you. Once they have finished, they then leave it on your bed for you to read their message. Alternatively, you could work on it together.
It’s as simple as that!
