Inside the journal

Dr Claire Maguire, Director, Raw Horizons Wellbeing Academy

"I love the Starter journal. The concept is fabulous, as the sooner kids can make a daily practise of forming positive habits then the hope is they develop the skillset to manage as they move into teenage years and beyond. With that in mind the journal is fun, motivating and keeps it simple, making it easy to fill in your journal everyday. I adore the faces to record your daily emotion. As well as the daily entries to fill, the journal is also filled with ideas and prompts. Just one last thing to say, the cover feels amazing and it makes you want to pick it up."

Dr Priya Rajyaguru, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist (ST6).

“My Starter Journal is a lovely starting place for children and young people to explore the world of journaling. With structured pages, writing prompts, interesting quotes and plenty of clear explanations, My Starter Journal introduces young ones (and their parents or guardians) to key concepts related to mindfulness and self-reflection.”

Love this so much…

The feel, design and structure of this journal are really hitting the spot with my six year old. I’m really hoping it will help shape conversations about having a positive mindset.

Beautiful journal for kids

Beautiful quality and design. My daughter (7 years) is a reluctant writer but has been enthusiastically filling this in. She likes the emotion faces, especially the one she can draw herself.

Frequently asked questions about My Starter Journal

What ages is the journal for?

My Starter Journal is recommended for ages 6-12. This does depend on your childs reading ability. We recommend that younger children are guided through using the journal with an adult.

The kids journal has been designed not to need extensive amounts of writing. However, it is recommended that especially for the younger ages an adult helps to write down the answers for the child.

The journal works as a great way to start a conversation between child and adult. When going through the answers for the daily entry, take time to discuss and reflect on them.

How do you use the journal?

My Starter Journal for kids has been designed for a daily morning and evening entry.

Each morning they will be asked how they are feeling, an affirmation to carry with them for the day, three things to be grateful for, and one thing that would make their day great. The questions allow the-user to express their emotions in a safe way and evaluate these feelings. The remaining questions then promote a positive mindset by asking them to focus on what they could be grateful for, and how they can shape their day in a positive way.

Each evening, before going to bed, they are asked to reflect on their day by answering questions such as 'what did they learn today' or 'how did they help someone today'. Teaching reflection to children is a positive exercise for helping them take lessons from the days events.

How long does the journal last for?

My Starter Journal lasts for 6 months. We found that this allowed enough time to form a positive habit of journaling, offered better value compared to other journals, and prevented the journal from being too bulky.

The journal is undated, and so while we do recommend for daily entries, this isn't always possible. Missing a daily entry doesn't mean that you waste a page in the journal.

Can I order these journals in bulk?

Yes. We offer wholesale prices for orders of 20+ journals. Please contact wholesale@malpaper.com for more information.
