Goals and pushing kids too hard

It's easy to fall into the trap of pushing our kids a little too hard. Of course we want the best them and sometimes we get carried away with scheduling too many "helpful" activities.

It's important when we focus on goal-setting with our kids to ensure that they always have enough down-time - time to reflect and even be "bored" - this helps them keep an active imagination, which itself is great for goal achievement.

Check out this article on "slow down and smell the flowers" as a reminder of how important relaxation is for your children!

Happy goal setting with your kids!
