Is Your Child Reaching Their Goals?

Whether or not they told you, your child will have a set of goals which they set at the start of the school year, either by themselves or at their teacher's direction. Now is the perfect time to find out what your child’s goals are and how they are tracking towards them.

Are They on Track?

Start by taking down all of your student’s goals on a notepad so that you can refer back to them for the remainder of the year. Once you have this, engage in a positive conversation where your child feels comfortable telling you about their progress.  During this talk, remember that your child may tell you that they aren’t likely to reach each of the goals on your list. If this occurs, the best response is support and encouragement.
  1. The first response is to help them make changes to their routine or provide them the resources they need to make up their lost progress. This could mean searching for additional learning resources, helping them more with their homework, or even shuffling their schedule and routines to find a bit of extra time each day.
  2. If neither of the above work or it just isn’t reasonable for them to reach a goal by the end of the school year, be sure that your student doesn’t simply give up. Instead, adjust the goals. For example, if a goal is to read a set number of books, look to either reduce that number or find books which are easier for them to read. The last thing that you want them to do is to give up. Instead, help them make the most of the time they have left in the school year to achieve as much as possible.

Additional Goals

If your child is at the other end, where they are entirely confident that they not only will achieve each of their goals but they also have additional resources and time, don’t be afraid to add smaller complementary goals. Keeping with the reading example, if your child is reading a series of books, there is likely to be smaller books by the same author which expand on a certain character or event in the primary series. This can be a great way to utilize their time without overwhelming them.
