Goal setting for kids - learning to prioritize

When we get pumped up and excited about our goals, sometimes we find that we are taking on too much - thinking that we can do everything.

While you encourage and empower your child to believe in himself and his abilities, you can also teach him how to prioritize and decide what are the most important tasks he should concentrate on in order to achieve his goals. There are only 24 hours in a day and prioritizing is a vital skill that we all need to learn if we are to reach our goals as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Don't be tempted to let your child cut back on sleep or other important activities in order to work on his goals. Instead help him to realize that there are other ways that he can rearrange his schedule - television is an obvious culprit when it comes to time-wasting, for example!

Happy goal setting with your kids,
