As 2022 came to a quick end, many people have started to create their list of goals for the new year. It is not too late to teach your kids about goal setting, especially long-term goals.
Having long-term goals has its benefits. It helps to develop resilience and get through the setbacks. Kids are able to learn how to manage themselves and once they are able to reach their goal, their self-esteem will increase. When goals are broken down into smaller chunks, it encourages kids to have organized behavior. This teaches kids to have proper checkpoints and standards.
Here are 6 steps, according to PBS Kids, to teach your kids about practicing goal-setting:
- Confront unrealistic goals
- Choose just-out-of-reach goals
- Set specific goals
- Break it down
- Set up checkpoints
- Make it a family plan
