Guide Your Child In Picking A Goal
Let your child choose a goal that he wants to achieve. You can guide your child by asking “What is something that you want to achieve?”. Discuss with your child the purpose of his goal.
Refine That Goal
Set SMART goals! Frame your child’s goal to be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound.
Break It Down, Take Small Steps
Work out a plan with your child to achieve his goal. Discuss with him each action he can take to achieve his goal.
Brainstorm On Potential Obstacles
Encourage your child to identify challenges that he might face and make plans on how he can overcome them.
“This is too difficult… I give up!”
- Remind your child on why he set this goal in the first place.
- Remind your child on how he decided to overcome obstacles.
- Let your child know on how he can continue to improve instead of giving up.
- Celebrate the little milestones with your child.
