A Private Summer Journal

Buy your preteen a special journal for him or her to write anything they want with no parameters. Preteens can use the notebook to write what they did that day, during family vacations, and books they read over the summer. They can also write about secret crushes, feelings, and emotions. And make sure your kids know it’s their private diary and you will not read it.
