This week I spent some time talking to the Eighth grade team about goal setting and using different goal setting strategies. Think about what kind of effective strategies your child uses for achieving goals. Do they break big goals down into one achievable goal at a time? Do they break their goals into small, simple steps? Help them create plans for how to take each step.
Think of a time you achieved a big goal, such as learning to drive or graduating from school. Tell your child about your goal and how you achieved it, and ask your child to tell you about a goal he or she has.
