Tip of the Week: Setting goals

Helping your child make resolutions for the new year is a great way to take a close look at what they want and hope for themselves. So often we design goals and programming based on what we feel is best without taking the child’s wishes under consideration. When a child helps to create the goal, the likelihood of them working towards that goal increases.

We wish you the happiest of New Years and can’t wait to see what 2020 brings!
