How can I help my child accomplish a goal?

Psychology
Write your child’s goal on paper and tack it up on the refrigerator or bulletin board. Tell your child each time he works towards his goals, you’ll mark the effort on the paper. Stickers or gummed stars are always colorful incentives for younger children to stick onto the page to check their progress. Point out the improvements and say: “Look how much closer you’re getting to your goal!” Helping our kids see their goal progress motivates them to keep on trying.

Encourage tweens and teens to take a photo of their goal using their cell phone then keep it as a screen saver to remind them of their intention.
