Resilient ME Gratitude Journal for Kids
For ages 5-12, the Resilient ME® gratitude journal not only teaches kids how to get the most out of practicing gratitude, but also has a lot of fun activities to help them build resilience and boost happiness, focus on what is important, stay calm when facing challenges and build a positive attitude.
Our children are capable of extraordinary things…
Sadly adversity is a fact of life, but being resilient means they are better able to cope during hardships or challenges, and ideally bounce back stronger than they were before. Imagine not just surviving but thriving, becoming stronger and wiser through the experiences of everyday life.
The best news is that resilience can be learned through fostering a positive attitude, having the ability to regulate emotions, being able to focus on strengths rather than weaknesses, making meaningful connections and creating healthy habits.
We can give our children skills so that these challenges don’t break them.
That is what building resilience is all about. It is one of the best skills we can teach to our children.
“Children who practice gratitude show increased positive emotions and optimism, decreased negative emotions and physical symptoms, and feel more connected and satisfied with school, family, friends and themselves”.
*** “Always use your journals as examples in my work. Best I’ve ever come across.”

*** “It’s amazing! It actually makes me quite emotional because I think how resources like this could’ve helped me so much as a child. You should be super proud of the things you are doing to help our kids.”
