The idea for this Mom & Dad Connection Journal came when looking for a journal to share between my kids. Everything I found was cheesy, drawn out, and not something I would stick to honestly. I wanted something that fostered REAL connection. Something that showed my kids that I was human too and that what is going on in their life matters to me. I wanted a safe place to write back and forth dialog where they could ask questions and be open with me.
So that is exactly what I created. A connection journal with 5 simple prompts that help you find gratitude, ask questions, be vulnerable, be engaged, and the space to clear your mind. These prompts can be silly and lighthearted and/or deep and personal. But either way they will connect you to your child in a way that is safe and doable.
Being vulnerable and creating connection is so important in a parent child relationship for everyone involved. It helps the child feel seen and loved and helps the parent slow down and focus on those relationships that are the most important. Sometimes that can feel a lot overwhelming but these Mom & Dad Connection Journals will break it down in a way that is doable, fun, and approachable.
Also the thought of kids and their dads sharing this journal is enough to make me cry my freaking eyes out. Like a sons slightly dirty hands tucking this so gently under their dads pillow after a hard day?! Forget about it. Cutest thing ever.
