Goal Setting with Kids by Example

A great way to encourage very young children with goal setting is to do it WITH them.

Take brushing teeth for example. What if you set a goal with your toddler to brush your teeth every night?

You could each have a little chart or calendar in the bathroom, one with "Mom" or "Dad" on it and one with your child's name.

Each evening, show your little one how you brush your teeth and then you get a star sticker to put on your chart. Show your child some excitment. And he too will look forward to brushing his teeth and completing his chart with a star!

Happy parenting,
