“Back to school” can be a good time to practice goal-setting skills with your kids. Grades, attendance, organization, time management… all areas with room for the two of your to develop a plan to reach a goal.
If you didn’t learn goal-setting until later in life then you know: neglecting to give a child the skills to set and active goals is like building luxury cruise ship with swimming pools, beautiful cabins, powerful engines… without navigation equipment.
The ship could probably leave the harbor…. but where would it go?
