Many of you may be familiar with "vision boards". Vision boards are used as a tool for you to identify your vision with clarity, reinforce daily affirmations and maintain focus on your goals using images, words and phrases. It is a constant reminder to keep your attention and focused on your goals.
Here is an article that speaks to the use of vision boards with your teen. Our youth today are influenced daily by images surrounding them - why not use the same to have them set goals, receive daily affirmation and maintain focus on their goals. If your teen is overwhelmed with the process, start small. Select one area they really want to focus on such as academics or sports and build on the board over time.
You can even consider this activity as one for the family. My teens and I have sat down and created them together. You can learn a lot about each other during this creative process. A great project for the coming weekend - grab some magazines, a glue stick, poster board and something warm to drink on a chilly winter day.
