When your child or teenager is feeling low, they may forget to notice the positive things about themselves. Keeping a diary can help your child start to recognise when things go well, and what they’re good at.
This activity is good for all ages. Start by asking if your child would like to try using a diary or journal. Then get them to talk, draw or write something about each point below.
It’s helpful to make a new list of successes every day, perhaps before bed. But your child can do this as often as they like.
