My two most recent learning activities for PBS Parents focused on children (duh) and are specifically timed for back to school season.
The first is a little something to boost confidence during a time of year when some young people began to doubt themselves and their abilities as they start a new grade with new teachers and new classmates. So much new can be confusing.
Check out how to help your kids make Self-Esteem Self Portraits…and maybe make one yourself. It feels really good to feel good about yourself.
Next, I feel as though the transitional period of back to school season is ideal for reflecting back on the highlights of a young life. Have your kiddo plot their special moments on a Childhood Timeline.
