Life According to me E Book and {Giveaway}

    Posted by  ·  January 5, 2013

    Do you ever wish you could take a peek into your child’s young mind and see what it is that makes them think, feel and act how they do? Do you sometimes worry that you’re not communicating with them very well or that you might be missing a teachable moment to help them grow, feel safe, and feel loved?

    Are you ready to spend time with them individually and no longer miss out on the details of their day?!?

    I know parenting isn’t easy… but it is one of the most rewarding things any of us will ever be a part of! (So many ups & downs, am I right?!) I’ve shared plenty of fun activities on my blog that encourage us to spend time with our children, but the idea I am going to share with you today takes it even one step further.

    “Life According to Me” is a darling child’s journal written by Stephanie from Somewhat Simple that will help you capture their youth and give you an inside glimpse of your child’s thoughts and feelings- all while having FUN!

    It’s more than a boring journal with lined pages- it is fun & interactive with 30 pages of daily prompts, fill-in-the-blanks, and spaces for kids to draw and doodle. If you can get your kid’s creative juices flowing and open the door for communication, you’ll catch a better glimpse of what is going on in their little brains.

    Perfect for kids of all ages!

    Older kids can write their thoughts, little kids can use the space to draw pictures or you can encourage them to do a combination of both!

    One of the best features of this journal is the spot on each page for your child to write a letter to you and the space for your response.

    {You’ll love this amazing portal into your child’s mind!}

    They write about ANYTHING they want – from funny things that happened at school, to questions about their science projects and information about their secret crush.

    Get ready to experience moments of their day that you would have missed and the small details of their lives you could have easily brushed aside.

    Your response will show your appreciation for them, to make sure they know that you love them. Validate their thoughts so they know they were heard and share bits of wisdom when a moment presents itself.

    These letters will create a place for you to communicate with each other frequently.

    Keep It Fun:

    You don’t want this magic passageway to close up or disappear, so keep journal writing fun! Stephanie has the following suggestion that she implemented with her kids:

    “I decided I would let each of them pick one weeknight where they get to stay up 10-15 minutes past bedtime and climb in my bed where we can write in our journals, together. It is amazing what a later bedtime does for a kid! They get to stay up while their siblings go to bed, and I get to spend some individual time with each of my kids learning more about them. It is a win-win!”

    Want to get your hands on a copy for your kids?

    Start creating precious moments within your home TODAY for only $5.95!

    • Create a closer relationship with your child.
    • Document their lives and capture their personalities
    • Offer comfort and support when they may feel alone or scared
    • Create a priceless piece of family history, a special keepsake to share with their future children.

    This is such a small investment in money and time, but the “payout” is HUGE!

      I have my Aunt's journals and I enjoy reading them so. She gave them to me while she was living but she is no longer alive. She is still with me through her everyday journal entries. A fantastic idea!

      I love this book because I really enjoy looking back at what MY mom wrote in her own little "journal" when I was little. I'd like for my kids to have the same thing and to be able to look back at a time they may not remember when they're older.

      Fantastic book for kids to journal!
    7. Tuesday, January 8th, 2013
      Because I love to write- enything; list, diary, letters- and I'd like my children to love writing too, and this must be so fun for them to write such a diary, and for me to read what they wrote.

      I started and stopped many journals as a kid so I was never super into it. But this is a fantastic idea. It helps outline it so its not completly from scratch. I have a book similar to this called "Mommy tell me your story" full of pages of stuff I can fill it to later give to my little girl, and I got one for my mom to give to her to called "Grandma tell me your story". This would go perfectly with it and be a great collection for her. :)

      This is such a great idea! I have been wanting to make a circle journal for my 7 year old who always says "nothing happened" when I ask about his day. This would help him work on his writing and it would give me a chance to see inside his daily life at school.
    24. Katherine
      Sunday, January 6th, 2013
      I think it's something my boys and I would love doing together! My oldest son loves hearing stories about when my husband and I were young, so I think he'd especially enjoy creating a book of his own memories.

      not only a great way to connect but also a great way to remember things your kiddo says and does

      I have been trying to get my daughter interested in journaling for several months and I love the idea of a later bed time for journaling once a week.

      I would love this for my three, I always mean to write down the things they say and do and this would help. My 7 year old loves writing too, it would be lovely to create something together that we can keep forever.
    34. VickiT
      Sunday, January 6th, 2013
      This book is an awesome idea, especially for young parents to write down the cute things their children do. I have so many things I can't recall from when my own children were very young that I am sad that I never took the time years ago to write things like these down.

      I would love to win a copy to give this to my son and his fiancee so they can use it for my 10 month old Granddaughter. She's doing such adorable things daily right now that they need to be written down.
    35. Cindy B

    51. Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      I love journaling and I would love for my daughter to grow up with this love too..especially in this day and age where its just too easy to get lost in the technology jungle...a pen and paper and a quiet time to yourself always provides that element of calm in your life that no social media or online journals can....thanks for the chance!
    52. Pam
      Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      I'm a teacher and I like the book because it gets kids to write and express themselves their own way. :)

      Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      I would love to win this! I have three children, two boys and then a girl and they are all lovely and frustrating in equal measure! I'd love to get inside their thoughts a little and may be we would get through the frustrating moments quicker and easier!
      Thanks for this competition.

      Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      My children are grown, but I have 18 grandchildren. I think this would be a great idea for them. And I even think it would be nice to have my own grown children do it as a reminiscence to their own childhood. Thanks for the giveaway. Dee

      I love scrapbooking and journaling. I would like my kids to get the same habits as well. Plus it is so darn cute!

    78. Sasha

    80. Sandi T
      Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      I think this will be a wonderful idea to do with my granddaughter too. She loves to do art but sometimes it would be nice to have on paper some of her ideas in words. I think this is a great idea. She is home schooled.
    81. Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      My kids are very reluctant writers, hopefully the prompts will help get them started. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    88. Sue
      Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      I love this because many kids get writer's block when asked to do creative writing and these "prompts" would stimulate their creativity, as well as give insight to thoughts parents would otherwise never realize their kids were having.
    89. Ann C.
      Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      Great idea! It's scary how I'm forgetting little details about them. Things I swore to always remember.

      Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      I would love to win a copy of this book! My kids are growing up so fast and I wish I could find time to journal about them but right now its so hard. This would motivate me to actually journal with them and would give them an opportunity to allow their voices to be heard in a way that we can enjoy for years to come.
    93. Pamela Owens

      What a great and fun book to start out the new year!
    100. Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      Excellent idea. My daughter is only 1 but I already sometimes feel like I there are special little moments I should record somewhere and I'm too lazy to design something like this on my own.
    101. Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      This would be so great for my young kiddos!!! Now... if I win, I would just have to buy two more! :)
    102. Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      This looks so cute. I would love something like this to encourage my son to express himself and practice his writing.
    103. Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      Oh, what a neat idea :-)
    104. Donel
      Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      I have a 4 year old that would love this. She loves to doodle and write and really loves to fill in boxes on forms. This would be right up her alley. :)
    105. Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      this is such a great idea.
    106. Saturday, January 5th, 2013
      This would make a great asset to homeschooling. It could get them on the path of journaling and the colorful pages make it fun. I love to read about my kids insights and thoughts.
