Keeping a diary can help your child start to recognise when things go well, and what they’re good at. When we’re feeling low, we often forget to notice the positive stuff.
This activity is good for all ages. Start by asking if your child would like to have a go at 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 regularly or occasionally as they like.
We take your safety and privacy seriously
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We also share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explicit consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
