(3) Big dreams require planning and perseverance

Those are beautiful characteristics and skills that can result from dreaming big. They are also characteristics and skills that can be taught early and have repeat payoffs throughout a lifetime.
So how do you teach kids to dream big? Here are three suggestions. One, have kids develop their own dream big journal. Have them fill it with pictures, writing, quotes, momentos, etc. Two, have them create their own dream big poster they can hang on their wall. Three, have kids create their own personalized dream big savings jar or bank.
