Calendars are great for teaching tweens and teens skills for organizing their life. Girls can use one for keeping track of sports practices, homework and tests, social events, special occasions, celebrations, chores and goal tracking.
To encourage your child to use the calendar, choose one that features a favorite character from a tv or movie show, a favorite animal or sport or famous person or whatever her interests are at the moment. She will be more likely to use the calendar if it is a theme she likes. To help you out, I put together a selection of popular 2016 wall calendars for teens and tweens that they will enjoy using all year long for planning their busy lives.
