My Worry Journal
Does your child get overwhelmed with worries and struggle to go to sleep? Do they find it hard to tell you their thoughts face to face? Are you looking for a way to understand their worries and support them?
'My Worry Journal' is a unique journal for kids who feel worried or anxious AND their parents. It's creative concept helps parents communicate with children through a 'Worry Owl'.
This journal gives parents an opportunity to understand their child's thought process and allows them to communicate with their child through the Worry Owl! A child friendly rhyme at the start of the journal (see images), explains the concept to your child as well as an explanation/example page.
How does the journal work?
The Worry Owl is a cute character that children can tell their worries to in their journal, by writing a note to them on a structured daily entry double page. Your child can take their worry from their minds and place it on paper, which in itself is a powerful strategy! Your child can colour a bar to show the extent of their worry and then the Worry Owl asks them to think about what their worry is trying to protect them from, as well as encouraging them to question the worry with a positive outcome. This structure has been designed to support your child to process their worry and implement anxiety strategies as they write. Finally there is space for the Worry Owl to reply with some helpful advice or support! We suggest leaving the journal by your child's bed so the Worry Owl (a.k.a YOU!) can reply overnight.
My Worry Journal aims to relax your anxious child at bedtime to facilitate good sleep. It contains a brief, child friendly explanation of how worries impact sleep but for more detailed resources for teaching children about anxiety see our shop front for our full range.
This journal is wrapped as standard and includes an encouraging note for your child from the Worry Owl, making a beautiful gift for children to receive in the mail. The note has a lovely worry managing strategy on the reverse which you could display to support your child further.
