TIP of the WEEK: New Year Goals

Latham-Centers3This is the time when we all plan goals for ourselves for the coming year. Our kids have goals as well but they are often goals that other people have decided on. Be sure that this year your child has a say in what they want to work towards. Goals should be attainable but also not so easy that they don’t have to work hard to reach them. Most importantly, be sure that they are goals that your child wants and not just something that you want for them. Ask them what matters and really listen to their answers.
Happy New Year!!!!
