Little Falls, MN, November 22, 2011: Journal Buddies creates a unique opportunity for parents and children to converse, deal with and cope with bullying. As a serious issue in school systems around the country and a growing epidemic, bullying can drastically alter the outcome of a child’s personhood. Many children today feel they are lost with no one to talk to about bullying issues because the adults in their life can only offer so much guidance for dealing with the issue.
Bullying facts have indicated that over half of all children deal with bullying both at school and through the phone or computer. Cyber bullying is another growing problem where children demean other children with harsh words. Through journaling a child is able to express their feelings about being bullied. Bullying articles have identified talk therapy as one of the best ways to help a child cope with being bullied. Journaling creates an outlet for children to express and understand their feelings as well as why other children are bullies.
Despite the attempts to pass laws to ban bulling, the problem is still prevalent. Parents and adults can do much to help their child put an end to being bullied, but most of all they can teach children to be strong, independent and understand why another child is bullying them. Journal Buddies are unique journals that enhance communication between two people. This can be between a child and their parent or teacher or a bully and a therapist or parent. The journals are more than just a notebook. They include pages where children can talk about traits that they like in their journal buddy, a place where the adult can write encouraging words and a word of the day for the child to focus on and ponder.
Journaling is proven to be therapeutic for both a bullying victim and their perpetrator. The privacy that a journal creates allows children to express themselves in a judgment-free zone. Through the use of effective tools such as Journal Buddies it is likely that the bullying epidemic can decrease exponentially until all children are happy, healthy and thriving in any environment. Journal Buddies journals are ideal for girls and boys up through the teenage years. In addition to helping a child cope and heal with bullying, it also helps build a stronger relationship and deeper trust and understanding between a child and their parent.
