Website Highlight

I generally talk about the negative aspects of the Web while supplying information on parental control software. Well, in my surfing I recently stumbled across Family eJournal, a site aimed at connecting families through communication. Basically you sign up for a family journal. This way you can talk to your family online in writing, which isn't nearly as intimidating as in person. Its completely private from the rest of the world.

So each day the members of your family login into the site and fill out a daily experience worksheet consisting of simply questions regarding your day. Each family can read the worksheets of all other family members. So you always know what's going on in evrybody's little world. It may take some time to get everybody to do it, but the benefits are worth the effort. Acoording to Ellen Pill, Ph.D.
My daughter and I have enjoyed writing back and forth with each other in a journal for years and now the FamilyeJournal has made this same experience easy and available to everyone! It is a terrific way to keep up in the course of busy lives and the written word can't be beat for discussing sensitive and emotionally laden topics. I recommend FEJ to any and every family!
I've added the site to my list of links if you're looking for it later.

    Dear Becca,
    I just wanted to let you know the hyperlink to the FamilyeJournal website isn't working. I believe there is an extra "double quotation" within the link. I know it's an old post but I thought you'd want to know.
