Power List

Ages 6-14
Issues: Loss, stress, loneliness, fear, powerlessness
Purpose: To help children affirm their choices and recognize their personal power
Discuss the idea of wish lists. Affirm with children their ability to empower themselves by choosing to have strong and positive feelings for themselves. Have the children make lists about how they could help themselves in the following ways
  • To feel safer
  • To feel hopeful
  • To feel less lonely
  • To feel respected
  • To feel happier
This exercise needs to be judgement-free, but the children need to understand that all answers or items should not bring harm to self, others, or property.
