If you are familiar with Rhonda Byrne's book, The Secret, there's a good chance you are familiar with the vision board. If you're not, here's the skinny. A vision board contains words and images which spark inspiration. It also provides the "vision" of a bright future and clear goals. Here's one example. If you want a Ferrari, you would print or cut out a picture of a Ferrari and paste it on the board.

Here's how the same concept applies to kids.
What do kids look at on a regular basis? One clear answer is a notebook. The board in this case would be the front and back covers of the notebook, inside and outside. Using decals, kids create their goals, dreams, and wishes. These goals are especially easy to spell out with monogram decals. What better way to increase a child's potential than to have them think of the future?
Naturally, kids need some guidance. Ask a child what they want, and the list will extend for miles. Have your kid streamline by doing this exercise with them. For example, ask them these four questions:
- What do you want to do when you grow up?
- Where do you want to visit the most?
- What is your favorite animal?
- Who is your hero?
These questions are just examples of how to expand your child's imagination. When you do this activity with your children, they will delight in having their favorite things in the same place. You have a better chance of getting them to do their homework. A parent can dream, right?
