This week I had a chance to meet with the 7th grade team to talk about student goal setting, and we focused on If-then plans. We are working on helping your child to learn how to use If–Then Plans for making positive choices in difficult situations. Research shows this is a great way for students to prepare for difficult situations before they happen.
Ask your child what an If–Then Plan is. Work together to make a plan for one of their personal goals. See how your child can respond positively to a difficult situation he or she might encounter at home.
