How the Personal Journal Helps Co-Parents

The Personal Journal gives co-parents a place to take private notes within TalkingParents.

The Personal Journal gives co-parents a private place to take notes within TalkingParents. This feature allows you to securely document any interactions or information that you would like, and it is not viewable to your co-parent.

How it works

Make a new entry in the Personal Journal to start taking private notes. You can also add up to five attachments with each journal entry. These attachments do not go into the Attachment Library that you share with your co-parent.

Journal entries can be edited, and the edit history will become a part of your Journal Record. Journal entries can also be deleted entirely, however, deletions will not be logged in your Journal Record.

Standard and Premium users get unlimited free downloads of their Journal Record, which contains a full report of current entries, along with the date and time that each entry was created.

When to use the Personal Journal

The Personal Journal can come in handy for co-parents in a variety of instances. Here are a few ways you might use this TalkingParents feature:

  • Draft messages that you would like to share with your co-parent, but you’re not quite ready to send.
  • Document important information for yourself, such as in-person discussions with your co-parent or child behavior observances.
  • Take personal notes that might be useful for your attorney.
  • Keep reminders that may be useful to your co-parenting relationship or child.
  • Take notes that you might want to share with your counselor or therapist.


The Personal Journal can help you organize your co-parenting life

This feature serves as yet another secure documentation tool within TalkingParents, allowing you to record any personal matters that may be useful to you. To learn more about the Personal Journal, visit its Features page or the TalkingParents Help Center.
