"So cute and thought provoking. My 8 year old son thought this was the best gift ever. I look forward to all the secrets and fun stories we are going to share with each other." - Mary Lee, Florida USA "I absolutely love this journal. My 13 year old adopted son has attachment issues that stem from trauma from his early childhood. This is an excellent way for us to bond." - Kathleen, Indiana USA "I ordered four journals [by Katie Clemons] recently, one for each of my children (ages 6-13). I knew my girls would love them, but my boys are reluctant writers, so I hoped they would tolerate the journals as part of their homeschool day. Well, both of my boys (ages 8 and 13) LOVE these journals! My 13 yr old son told me "This is the most awesome writing thing ever!" and didn't even wait until our school semester started before we had begun writing in our "Mom and Me" journal.It's pretty cool when your teenage son can't wait to do a writing project with you!" - Heidi, Ohio USA "I bought the mother/son journal to do with my 13 year old. I am thrilled that I will have this keepsake. Memories not just from my perspective, but from my son's as well. Simply awesome." -Laura, Texas USA

Our Most Difficult Bonding: Mother - Child
"Around this time last year I was having the most difficult time in my relationship with my oldest son.
To say we were in crisis would be accurately describing it.
I had tried all the ways I knew how to motivate him to do what I thought was best and had failed.
Yeah, did you catch that?
Our interactions became so stressful. He was frustrated and I was unyielding.
I didn't know what else to do (punishment, positive motivation, prayer).
Have you been there?
A dear friend rescued me.
Aware that I was going through this, she showed up on my doorsteps, un-announced, during one of my desperate attempts to fix it all, one day.
I am so grateful I have beautiful amazing friends to grow wise with, as we wing this Mom gig together. Cherish those friends in your lives, be that friend, dear Moms!
Her visit was a turning point for me (because I don't wanna call it an intervention).
I realized my son's love language is what I needed to KNOW and LIVE OUT if I wanted to reach him. Yes, I heard it straight from him.
Knowing this and taking action has been transformative. [read some of my other Connecting With Your Child posts for more on this.]
Then just last month, I found something that perfectly fits his love language.
The Between Mom & Me - Mother Son Journal.
I've known that my son always saves every little note I write to him.
He hangs on to every heart shaped post-it that I stick on his laptop screen.
But I was not prepared for this.
I read through the journal and decided to introduce it to him and start using it this week.Read more ›
Sometimes it is a lot easier to think more deeply while you are writing than it is when you are talking.
The book author also has a lot of suggestions on ways to personalize the journal even further.
When we are each done writing in it then we place it right next to the others bed side table. It makes for a cute little surprise as you are going to bed.
