As young children develop both physically and emotionally, it is important for adults to present opportunities to them for discussion and reflection upon their growth. The activities below suggest five creative ways to help foster a positive self-image and boost self-awareness. Baby Talk, The Birthday Chair, and Chronicle Growth Chart aid young children in their awareness of the process of growth. Music Pictures introduces a mode for self-expression. Dial-a-Parent integrates the family into the school environment. Children should enjoy the time spent devoted to studying themselves.
