Setting goals together can be an excellent way to channel your child’s ability. You don’t want to pile on the pressure but setting something like two to three weekly goals with your kid can be such a positive influence in their lives. Keep the goals small. Maybe say you’ll learn one new thing together every day. Small goals can create a great sense of satisfaction and achievement with little effort. You could even set up a star chart system for when they reach the goal. Kids love stickers, and seeing their chart fill up will be a fantastic incentive. Setting goals early in life helps your child to learn to plan ahead and develop self management skills that will last a life time.
