MY GOOD GRIEF JOURNAL FOR KIDS is created for children who have had a precious loved one or dear friend die. It is also a tool for parents and other adults responsible for the care of children who grieve.

The purpose of MY GOOD GRIEF JOURNAL FOR KIDS is to help adults spark warm conversations with their grieving children about a loved one who has died. The app will also help create a permanent treasure chest of the child’s memories, thoughts and feelings about their deceased loved one.

1. HELPS ADULTS KNOW WHAT TO SAY to a child after the death of a precious loved one or dear friend.
2. HELPS START ENGAGING CONVERSATIONS between grieving children and their adults.
3. HELPS CHILDREN REMEMBER the precious treasure that was and is the loved one who died.
4. HELPS CHILDREN (and their adults) EXPRESS FEELINGS in ways that feel safe.
5. HELPS REDUCE FEELINGS OF ISOLATION that so often cloak children and families who are mourning.

-- Requires an Adult User to assist in creation of Child User accounts.
-- Data is private and completely self-contained within the iPad's memory.
-- Adult Users may also choose to back-up app data to their private ‘iCloud Storage’ account.
-- User provides name and relationship info about themselves and the deceased.
-- Both the user's name and name of the deceased then flows throughout the app. -- The relationship (such as father-to-daughter, grandmother to grandson, or friend-to-friend) the two had with one another also flows throughout the activities.
-- Appropriate gender pronouns (such as he-she or his-her) also makes the content feel more personal.
-- Twenty pages filled with meaningful activities help users remember their loved one and express thoughts and feelings they are having.
-- A gentle cartoon character (G.G. Parrot) serves as a friendly guide through each of the twenty pages of activities.
-- Each activity is designed to encourage both children and adults to move towards their memories, thoughts and feelings--rather than to run from them.
-- Beautifully designed, innovative tools and menus make the ‘Remembering’ activities more pleasant.
-- Tools include photo frames, audio and video recording, writing, drawing, typing, and emoticons to express feelings.
-- Users may create an unlimited number of journal pages.
-- Each day the gentle G.G.Parrot invites users to begin their journaling by choosing an idea (‘Write Idea’) to journal about.
-- Users may journal using any and all of these beautiful tools: photo frames, audio and video recordings, writing, drawing, typing, and emoticons.
-- An iPad may contain an unlimited number of Child User 'accounts.'

Amazing App

This app is an excellent tool to help children navigate feelings rising from the death of a loved one. The app is very user friendly and can easily be used by a child with adult guidance. In reviewing the app, it was actually very helpful for me as an adult. The 20 year anniversary of my mom’s death just came up as I was reviewing this app. The app was very helpful to me in resolving issues I had suppressed for 20 years. I highly recommend this app to any family going through the grieving process.

Amazingly Helpful Tool

This app could be invaluable to families that have lost a loved one. It is designed to gently but effectively guide parents and children through grief journeys by encouraging discussion and preserving memories in multi-media formats. The end result is a testimonial to the loved one's life, and the process of creating it is profound. It even includes a wealth of offline activities to encourage healthy responses to loss. Highly recommend!!

Great App

I truly appreciated all this app has to offer. My kids (5&3) were both able to express themselves through the different prompts/activities. I enjoyed the conversations it started in our home about how they were feeling with the loss of our loved one.
