My teens often send me amusing YouTube videos. Now, here's one that I want to send to them: Help Your Kids Succeed with Goal Setting For Students. Dont' let the title mislead you -- it's a good video for parents and (older)kids alike to watch!
With all the activities, homework, family responsibilities, etc. it is sooo easy to let our lives run us, rather us running our lives. This video reminded me how important it is to slow down, prioritize, set goals, and set reminders for those goals -- again good stuff for both parents and kids.
So, I'm curious - do you encourage your kids to set goals? What are your methods? At what age do you start to introduce the concept of goal setting for your kids?
