Keeping a journal is not only for jotting down feelings and how you overcome them in the future. It’s a lot to do with how children can understand themselves and how they will give them better management of their thoughts and feelings.

With the many things your child is studying in school, you could find that a lot of benefits are found in journaling on a regular basis. For children, here are some key benefits to keeping a diary and logging your progress throughout the week.

Teaches your child how to handle their emotions

Writing things down often, even if it’s every other day or at the end of the week, can help your child reflect on how things have gone and what they have learnt. Your child is able to look back on that week, or day, and see where they could have changed the outcome.

They’re also able to see first-hand how that made them feel and what it did to their development skills. Did they feel sad about a day at school, or were they happy to receive some good news from a friend? At a young age, these can impact their growth, which is why it’s worth getting a journal for your child to write in, even if it’s from time to time.

Helps your child learn better

The main reason for this is that there are a lot of things that can go unmissed, especially when you’re a child. Having somewhere to write these down makes things a lot easier for your child’s development in a general sense. It will give your child plenty to think about, and in turn, builds their memory skills.

Writing things down is often a good resource for children because they have something to refer back to at a later time. Their journal can be used for any purpose – for school work, personal reflections or just for fun – but they all help your child learn a lot about themselves and how they work in the process.

Helps your child overcome problems

We will all have a moment in our lives when a problem arises and we don’t know how to handle it. This is where a journal comes in handy, as you can write out what happened and carefully plan out how you would handle things next time.

For children this can be a big benefit to their understanding of resilience, overcoming difficult situations and being able to handle themselves. In the future, then, this becomes a lot easier, as they’ve already got a plan in their head on how to handle different problems.
