Goal setting for pre-schoolers is not something we hear about often, but its never too early to start. Its a great way to build their self-confidence and a valuable life-long skill. Goal-setting helps them to identify what is wanted, and that if they set their minds to something, they can achieve it. Setting goals with your children will direct their efforts and encourage them to achieve success.
In nurturing resilience in our children, its important to find a balance between the bubble wrapping practices of a helicopter, over-protective and controlling parent on the one hand, and the laissez faire, under-supervised parenting practices on the other.
