"The problem with journals when you are younger is it is very hard for kids to come up with how they are feeling and what they are thinking," says Dr. Lee, a mother of four herself. "[The Daily Doodle] prompts the child and gives them ideas of how to express themselves." These prompts are intended to help children uncover their thoughts, feelings, and coping skills, and the interactive nature of the book promotes parental engagement in what Lee calls "3 C Journaling", meaning that parents can collaborate, create, and connect with their children through it.
Lee hopes to create additional tween and teen versions of the journal by next year. For more information about Dr. Lee or "The Daily Doodle", visit her website at: http://drjanetlee.com
