Totally Private & Personal: Journaling Ideas for Girls and Young Women.
This book offers journaling ideas for girls and young women ages 11-16, although it states that others who like to "journal" will find something here for them, too. The book discusses the reasons for journaling, including that it can serve as a good release when angry, sad, troubled, or even happy. The book also states that a journal is a safe haven for exploring feelings and dreams, is a source of inspiration, and a means of recording thoughts and memories to be reread in the future. The book provides information on seasonal journaling and different types of journals, such as computer journals, art journals, or family journals. The book has special sections on growing up, including body changes, and feeling good about being a girl. Resource ideas are provided in the book, including a list of books, magazines, and Web sites.
