Have You Checked on Your Child's Goals?

This point in the school year is a great time for parents to touch base with their children and see how they are tracking in regards to their goals. If you would like help to make this conversation a constructive one, below is a brief article from The Tutoring Center, Wichita which can help.

What Are Their Goals and Will They Reach Them?

If your children are like most then it’s likely that they haven’t shared their goals with you the entire school year. To start, take out a notepad and ask about the goals either they or their teachers set for completion by the end of the school year. Once you have these, work through the list and find out if they are likely to achieve each one. As you do this, it’s important that they feel comfortable being honest with you, as there may be instances where they need to tell you that they aren’t likely to reach a  specific goal. If you get this answer, the best way you can respond is with encouragement and support.
  • The first step is to help your child make up for lost time. This could be something as simple as giving them more homework help each night, finding them additional learning resources, or even just helping them reshuffle their schedule to make more time.
  • If it just isn’t realistic for them to reach a goal with the time they have, instead of giving up, encourage them to alter the goal. This can be anything from reducing the set number of books they wanted to read or lowering the proficiency in an additional language. It’s important that, instead of giving up, they make the most of the time they have to learn and achieve as much as possible.

Additional Goals

If, on the other hand, you and your student can’t foresee any hurdles which will prevent them from achieving each of their goals and they have additional time and resources available, don’t be afraid to add complementary goals. Keeping with the above examples, this could include looking for smaller books which connect to a series they aimed to read and complete, or even adding a set of verbs or nouns to the language level they are likely to achieve.
