If you are preserving a high school memory with your teen and there is no picture, use what there is by way of memorabilia. Teens could even draw a picture themselves to put in the scrapbook representing the event. Write or type up a little something about the event or memory being preserved. You could even take an after thought picture. If the teen wore something special, go take a picture of the dress or outfit and put that on the scrapbook page.

Let them include the memory, but hopefully without any unpleasantness. Try to help your teen see that it is good to have some sort of remembrance, even if the event or day was bad, like getting braces. Let them choose what goes in and possibly put any extra pictures behind the scrapbook page so they are not misplaced. The pictures may be appreciated later in life. For example the braces do come off.

Preserve the memories that may not be too great and fun, and finally don’t think everything needs to have it’s own page and may not even need to be put in the scrapbook.
