Realistic Goals For Your Child
I recently read an article about a sports psychologist. She was playing a game with a group of kids.
In the game, the kids ran a race doing all sorts of crab walks, bear crawls, and cool things like that. And they were timed.
After the first race, the woman told the kids their times, and asked them to set a goal for the 2nd race.
Being kids, they set completely unrealistic goals. Top runners in the world would have trouble making their times!
But she wasn’t done there…
Because after this race, she asked them to re-evaluate their goals. They all picked more realistic ones- but ones that were still challenging.
Which leads us to a very important lesson in building confidence in our kids… That lesson is that over-achievement is great…
but don’t let your kids set themselves up for failure!
A great method to help them setvchallenging, though still realistic
goals is to…
- Let your kid set a goal about a
- Let them try out the new
- THEN have them re-evaluate their
That way you’re teaching them how to shoot for the stars… then how to set smaller goals that will one day get them there.
One of the things our program focuses on is fun goal setting and confidence-building for kids.
