Helping Your Child to Reach Their Educational Goals

If you haven’t already, now is a great time to sit down with your child and speak about the goals they set at the start of the school year. Below is a great post from The Tutoring Center, Roseville which can help you make this conversation a productive one.

Check in on Their Progress

If your child is like most then there’s a good chance that they haven’t shared their goals with you before. If this sounds familiar, the first step is to find out what their goals are. Don’t be afraid to write them down for your own benefit. With these known, have a positive conversation about how they are tracking and whether or not they expect to achieve each goal by its due date, which is likely to the end of the school year. If your child tells you that they aren’t tracking well or they aren’t likely to achieve some of their goals, the best response is assistance and encouragement.
  1. Your first and preferable response is to help them find ways to achieve their goals. This could involve providing them with more homework help, finding them additional learning resources, or helping them adjust their routines or schedule to accommodate for more study time.
  2. If, on the other hand, it just isn’t reasonable for them to reach a goal within the timeframe set, don’t be afraid to alter the goal. As an example, if your child's goal is to read a set number of books, either look to reduce that number or find smaller or easier-to-read books.
Of course, the first option will be the best, but if it’s just not reasonable for them to reach a goal, the last thing that you want them to do is to give up. Instead, work with the time and resources they have and get the most out of both.

Complementary Goals

If your discussion finds that your child is not only on track to achieve each and every one of their goals but they also have extra time and resources available, don’t be afraid to add complementary goals. As an example, if your student is reading a series of books, look for other books by the same author which are connected to the series, such as books which are about a specific character in the series or an event which occurred.
