Goal Setting with your Kids

December is fast approaching, and soon the children will be unavoidably thinking about and looking forward to the Christmas holidays, with all the Christmas lights and Christmas shopping promotions and advertising that is inevitable at the end of the year.

Why not use the opportunity to teach your child some goal setting skills? Here are some ideas you could use:

* Set a goal to make hand made personalized Christmas cards for all your friends rather than just buying them.

* Set a goal to teach your child some age-appropriate cooking skills so he can help in the kitchen on Christmas day.

* Set a goal (for an older child) to learn some financial skills by having a Christmas shopping budget and shopping around in order to stick to the budget.

I'm sure you have plenty of great ideas for goal setting with your kids this Christmas!
