How it Works
Our Wildly Different Journal is based on the theoretical foundations of mindfulness-based stress reduction and uses scientifically proven exercises to help children develop long-lasting skills to manage their thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Regular journaling is scientifically proven to aid in stress management and mental wellness. Children can pick any day to begin and work at their own pace! There’s no pressure to write in it daily and it should ease stress - not create it.
The journal is filled with fun and interactive prompts to get children away from screens and on to paper, practicing reflection to stay present in the moment. It takes roughly 28 days to form a new habit, and children can take these lessons with them far into the rest of their adult life.
About Dr. Bec
Hi, I’m Dr. Bec, a psychologist with over 20 years in the industry - I help people fix hurt feelings, untangle mixed up thoughts and teach them how to keep their minds healthy!
I’ve worked with children and adolescents across all walks of life and I’m pleased to present the Wildly Different Journal to your child and your family. With oodles of fun exercises, illustrations and writing prompts, we’ve created a safe and exciting place for kids to share their feelings.
My 4 children (3-13) have worked closely with me to make sure this journal is as fun and practical as possible. The writing prompts inside are useful as parent-child ‘conversation starters’, so I hope this helps spark some meaningful connections and discussions in your household!
From my home to yours, I wish you well on this wildly different journal adventure!

“My son has always been a very sensitive boy. He’s really outgoing at school and gets along with other kiddies, but he does have a bit of a temper. I purchased this journal in hopes that he would learn to understand his emotions.
I can say that we’ve never looked back!
He writes in it everyday and has really learned to be aware of his emotions and find ways to cope. The book has taught me a thing or two as well! The breathing exercises in it are just as great for adults (I sure know a few who could use them..) as they are for kids!
- Noelle. Mum of 7yr old boy.
“As she’s getting older, I’ve been worrying about her emotional development - she’s a really smart girl but very very quiet.
The Wildly Different Journal has really helped her come out of her shell. It’s her favourite thing to do each day. The journal has really helped engage her and she particularly likes the little meditative exercises the journal offers.
The best part is picking her up from school and actually sharing with me how her day was, what she enjoyed and felt really thankful for. I’ve recommended the Journal to several parents at the school and they’re all loving it.
I wish they’d make this journal part of the school curriculum!”
- Cassie. Mother of 10yr old daughter.
“I bought these as a Christmas gift for my boys last year instead of another console or game and they have been loving it.
They do the journal together each night and compare what they’ve written - it’s really helped them bond together too.
My youngest always loves to copy the oldest and I’m just overjoyed that they’re building really strong habits together.
We end up talking about the topics they’ve followed at dinner time as a family and it’s just nice to hear what’s really going on in their lives.”
- Samantha. Mum of two boys 6 & 8.
