Tweens/Teens

tween-girlsPlanning for the start of a new school year can set the tone for how that year will turn out. The concept of a vision board has been around for generations but has gained a renewed popularity in alleviating stress in school children.

• Create a list of intentions with your child. List hopes for the upcoming school year. Write each on separate strips of colorful paper and glue to poster board.
• Collect visual images to go with the list of intentions.
• Add decorative handmade paper scraps and fun stickers to the poster board.
• Decorate vision board using paint, markers, crayons, or colored pencils to add shading, doodling, drawings, and your child's personal touch.
• Let the board dry overnight then hang in a place where your child can view every day, like the back of her bedroom door for daily reinforcement.

Did you know that Goodwill provides free computer access and job search training to those in our area seeking employment?
