Journaling is a great way for parents to encourage children to practice writing skills, especially teenagers.

Journaling is great for children who are not forthcoming with wanting to write, are reluctant to speak or, have a hard time expressing themselves.
When Brittany Fremont entered her freshman year of high school, it seemed her life was falling apart. Her mother had abandoned her to pursue a life of drugs, leaving her on the steps of her grandmother's Seattle home.

Daily journal writing can be an excellent tool of self-expression and self-discovery for preteens and teens actually for kids of all ages! Journal writing helps them to process the myriad of thoughts, feelings, and emotions they experience and becomes an invaluable tool for understanding their many life experiences. It is also an excellent form of creative self-expression.
From a practical perspective, journaling is an easy and flexible way for the pre-teen to express themselves in a constructive and productive manner. All that is needed is a recording device, the simplest form being a pad of paper and a pencil, for the pre-teen to start writing about their thoughts, feelings and their environment. Another advantage of the journal is that it can be applied to practically any life situation.
It's a good idea to keep a journal, because when years have passed, you will find it interesting to read what you have gone through. You can see how you dealt with it, and discover ways to deal with similar situations in the future. If you have been through something unusual or difficult, you might even choose to publish parts of the book.
This evening I was looking through some of our homeschooling materials from our last year of homeschooling yes I still miss it and I came across the list of writing prompts that my son used during his junior high years. I thought some of you who homeschool might like this list. I had this list for my son to use for ideas for his daily journal writing if he could not think of something on his own.
