The Can Do Kid Journal for Super Heroes by Sue Atkins


I’m delighted to tell you that my ‘Can Do Kid Journal for Super Heroes’ has had fab reviews from Fundamentally Children – a website set up by Dr. Amanda Gummer  a research psychologist specialising in child development. Dr. Gummer has set up three organisations – Fundamentally Children, FUNdamentals and Good Toy Guide Ltd, all of which promote the value of play and positive parenting in child development.

What is it

The ‘Can Do Kid Journal’ is all about helping children feel more confident, more assertive and more relaxed in all areas of their lives. It is filled with tried and tested strategies, simple practical techniques, and a highly effective set of tools to empower them to make some small positive changes in their lives quickly and easily.

The journal is designed to inspire a generation of children to become creative, innovative, independent, resilient and confident in their own abilities to try new things, and be resourceful enough to tackle anything and bounce back after setbacks.

It will build the positive mindset, motivation and long term self-confidence and self-worth that children need to succeed as they learn to develop a ‘Can Do Kid’ attitude to life.

What our experts think


As we all become more aware of the key role of positive wellbeing, it’s important to find  accessible ways to support children in building their confidence; and we had some truly amazing feedback from parents on the Can Do Kid Journal. The  journal puts children in control, with its child-friendly language and a wonderful variation of fun and thoughtful tasks to dip in and out of. It’s fantastic for encouraging deep conversations and quality time between parents and their children, which is just as good for a child’s self-worth as the activities themselves.

We tested the journal with children who are fairly anxious and it was wonderful to see the positive impact on their attitude and thinking. The Can do Kid Journal is a great tool for parents to help tackle ‘confidence zapping’ problems – our testers said it helped their child focus on their good attributes and all the great things in their lives. The value of confidence and positive thinking can’t be underestimated; skills like this help children tackle life situations and inspire them to fulfil their potential.
