Dear Parents,
Try to hunt for diaries or journals for your children. The unique diaries with cloth covers, fancy patterns, a lock, and various sizes are very appealing to children; but, a plain notebook or plain cover serve the purpose also. Many famous people wrote in diaries, including Anne Frank, Harry S. Truman, and Lewis Carroll.  Diaries can be used for a variety of purposes such as free writing, to describe feelings and moods, as travel journals, to record observations in nature, and for art or personal reasons.   Jeff Kinney wrote a famous children’s series and became wealthy making movies of "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid."  So, diaries are for both  boys and girls.  They record memories and can be the documentation of your child’s youth.  Try to cultivate the love of writing and self-reflection by thinking outside over-priced technology. Most importantly, write with or in front of your children. Let them imitate and innovate your actions!
