Helping children become aware of their dreams and teaching them how to reach for goals is a critical skill that needs to be encouraged. Our hopes and dreams shape our lives, the choices we make, and the success we achieve. Everyone has different dreams – and a different definition of success. But everyone needs a dream. Dreams and goals give life purpose, direction, and meaning. They help us people to build toward the future, and offer a sense of control and hope. It's critical to get kids thinking early about what's important to them and why. Setting and striving for goals helps children learn responsibility, how to break a large task into bite-sized steps, how to get what you want, how to handle stress, what's realistic and what may not be, and to BELIEVE in who you are and what you can accomplish.
In the workshop we use a simple but effective approach to get the children thinking about their life dreams. We help your child to start getting clear on their goals and aspirations. They'll be motivated and encouraged to visualize their dreams for the future through drawing, painting, drama and games. And most important they’ll learn skills on how to reach for their goals.
