Do/ will you teach your child(ren) goal setting and how to achieve them?


I will teach Annika early on to set goals and how to reach them.

Justin has a marble jar. Every time he does something good or without being asked he gets to put a marble into the jar. When he is naughty we take out three. When the jar is full, he gets to get the prize that he selected when we started. I learned this on Nanny 911. Some would not necessarily say this is goal setting, but my goal is to get him to be good more of the time. Good Behavior is Rewarded.

jendaly- sounds great....ben is too little but we do all sorts of things with travis. now that he is big its not really a rewards based thing but just support. we went with him to see his guidance counsilor at the beggining of the school year to help him set achedemic goals, and his swim coach has family meetings a fwe times a year where travis tells us his goals and we have to come up with a strategy to help him meet them...........

Yes, from the beginning we have taught the boys to believe in themselves and reach for the stars.

Jendaly~ I read about that in the book of Nanny 911. I think it is a very good system and I do't see a problem with good behavior being rewarded when a child has to work hard to be "good".

Brandon was never taught what goal setting and reaching was. If he sees something is too much work then he just quits. We got him out of that while he was living with us but now that he is back with his mom he's back to his old ways. It's frustrating.
