As parents, what we all really want is to connect deeply with our children. To know what’s going on inside their hearts and minds, and to know how to best guide them

Today, Loom Journals debuts its modern, timeless family journal on Kickstarter. This heirloom quality journal was designed by a team of three mothers to create a mindful parent-child connection through a shared creative writing experience.

When founder Kim Stoddard’s daughter was just six-years-old, she found herself desiring a deeper connection. What started as an experiment in writing to each other in a “Dollar Store” notebook with simple prompts turned into the foundation for Loom Journals. Stoddard quickly realized how the simple act of writing to each other created space for a more open and meaningful relationship.

“As parents, what we all really want is to connect deeply with our children. To know what’s going on inside their hearts and minds, and to know how to best guide them,” said Stoddard. “That’s exactly the purpose of Loom Journals. As parents and children work through it together, they will discover things about themselves and each other that they may not learn otherwise.”

Loom Journals are carefully curated to foster that connection. The journal is filled with prompts that start important conversations as well as free-writing pages to allow space for creativity. While many journals exist to document early childhood, none allow for active participation from both parent and child in the way the Loom Journals does. The Loom Journal aims to capture and preserve memorable moments and details while strengthening the parent-child relationship. The journal is also time-agnostic, so users can work through the journal at their own pace.

“One of the greatest challenges parents face today is the inability to have genuine, screen-free conversation and connection with their children,” says Kimberly Christenson, writer at Loom Journals. “Our goal was to create a tool to help parents build meaningful relationships, while helping them improve their writing and communication skills and develop a high level of emotional intelligence.”

“As we scoured the market for journals, we didn’t find any parent-child journals that had the level of design quality we wanted,” said Loom’s designer, Tosha Seeholzer. “Also, they were all catered to girls. The Loom Journal is for a boy or girl of any age. And since our mission is to help you invest in things that last, we made sure our journal is heirloom-quality. We know you’ll love this journal and we want you to be able to pass it down for generations to come.”
