Hey there! How’s it going? There’s been a lot of great discussion about various math problems and the ins and outs of Saxon in the Facebook group this week so I know everyone is back in the swing of things and hard at work. January can be a dreary month but I hope this series on goals and goal-setting has been timely as we jump into the new year.
But now is the time where things are getting more difficult. And I know when you are educating children in academics it can seem overwhelming to tackle behavior or character-building issues like goals and resolutions, too. I hope your student has stayed motivated to make positive changes, but if they’re struggling, I wanted to give you three ideas for helping them stick with the work it takes to meet their goals.
We know you helped them set good goals. But what happens when they aren’t where they want to be yet? Most kids don’t appreciate delayed gratification, so here’s what to do if they are feeling frustrated, not seeing progress, or wanting to give up.
I hope 2020 is going great for you so far. I hope that you’re working on some goals of your own, too, and experiencing success in that. This list will work for you, too, so be patient, stay or get back on track, and talk kindly to yourself. You got this!
