Adolescence is a time often characterized by conformity as well as self-expression. As pre-teens form close bonds with groups of friends, it’s not uncommon for them to feel lost in the shuffle or uncertain about how they fit in. Everything from the clothes and shoes they wear to the clubs and activities they join become ways to express who they think they are and how they want to belong.
Now is a good time to help your child find new creative outlets, which may involve pointing to tools he can readily use as well as places he can go for inspiration. In addition to traditional art supplies, such as colored pencils and watercolors, digital media tools, like a mobile video camera and editing software, can fuel your child’s imagination.
