The other day our oldest daughter got into trouble. She went and got paper and a pencil and hollered from her room asking how to spell our names. This is what she wrote. Which led to this idea.
We decided that writing out her feelings was appropriate and better than screaming and crying out loud. But we felt it should have a time and a place. So, today I bought each girl a box and let them pick their own stickers. After they decorated the boxes I explained what a privacy box was. They are allowed to place special things like cards, pictures etc. inside. They can make a surprise for someone and put it in there. Plus we gave the oldest a "privacy notebook" where she is allowed to write her feelings. I did encourage her to write happy things too. We think it is a neat idea. What do you think?
