In a lighthearted but thought-provoking way, this journal acknowledges that children experience the world differently than adults do. An adult might not realize what a child thinks is mean. Children define "mean" differently according to their age and family experiences. It's important for children to have a safe place to express their frustration and confusion about the world. This journal is one tool for building this safety in your family. How do mean people make you feel? What are some mean things people do? What is the meanest thing of all? What are some nice things people could do instead of being mean? Can friends be mean to each other and still be friends? What could you say to someone who does something mean to you? Writing and drawing are healthy emotional outlets. My Book of Mean People Journal encourages children to develop their self-awareness and self-expression. The activities in this book will help children come to terms with their emotions. By using this journal, children become more aware of why people--including themselves-- do mean things.
