How Goal-Setting Helps ChildrenJan 13, 2024
Have you ever set a goal for yourself - personal or professional - and experienced the wonderful sense of satisfaction you feel when you have achieved it?
It’s such a great feeling to know we have achieved something we set our mind to, no matter how large or small it is.
I'm a great believer in helping children to set and achieve goals so they get to experience this feeling too, on a regular basis.
Its great for fostering self-esteem, as well as hope for the future and a sense of purpose.
So in this week's video, which I made a couple of years ago, I talk all about how to help children set and achieve goals, as a way to improve their emotional wellbeing.
And even when we don't manage to achieve a goal, there is still so much we can learn to improve our performance ready to try again, so it's still a valuable life lesson.
While success is important, it’s also important that children grow and learn about themselves through the process of working towards something, regardless of the outcome.
