Put pen to paper
Ask older kids to write down some things they’d like to learn, experience or achieve in the next week or month and help them fulfil those ideas. Learning about the experience of working towards something, and sometimes failing, will help them practise goal-setting and build resilience.
Keep a daily or weekly journal of what your kids say, do, learn and feel. Review it after a year and marvel over how much you’ve forgotten and how far they’ve come.
