Encouraging Creativity In Teens


“Every child is an artist. The problem is staying an artist when you grow up.” – Pablo Picasso.

Children are naturally creative. As they grow into teenage, they become self-conscious and try to stay safe within their comfort zones. However, with some little help their creativity can be rekindled.

“Creativity isn’t limited to painting or writing. It’s also about inspired thinking, and being able to use imagination in everyday life. For example, if your teen is struggling with an aspect of school work, use alternative methods to get their creative juices flowing, such as brainstorming to come up with solutions to their problems, inspiring them to think outside the box,” says

Encouraging your teenager to question things is an amazing way to ignite their creativity. Encourage them to pursue some new activity that they have never tried before.
