A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids and teens can learn how using a journal to record positive experiences and emotions can influence their well-being. As users reflect on the big and little positive things that occur each day, they grow in self-awareness and gain perspective on life. Kids can also practice writing succinctly, as they must limit each "what went well" entry to 100 characters or less.
Ease of Play
Very easy to use. Simply type each entry in less than 100 characters. It's easy to set a reminder alarm and to search back through entries by week, month, year, or "all time."
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
This gratitude journal app is a simple way for kids, teens, and adults to increase positive vibes. Three Good Things - A Happiness Journal can provide a place for anyone to reflect every day on what's going right in life. What helps set it apart from paper journals is that users can set a reminder so they won't forget to take a few minutes to write down three good things that went well for them that day. They also can look back to previous days and reread their happy moments, and they can share any or all their reflections on social media if they choose. There's no guarantee that using Three Good Things - A Happiness Journal will improve every user's happiness, but there is some research to indicate that it might work, and it can't hurt to give it a try!
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
