Goals, Motivation, Competiton
Let your child draw up a list of short-term objectives and one long-term objective.
Make sure their goals are achievable, yet take effort to accomplish them.
When your child achieve their goals, let them know you are proud of their hard work. Celebrate your child’s victory.
In some circumstances, reward them for their efforts.
Foster healthy competition in your child.
Cheer them on when competing against another runner in a race or to bring home the winning trophy in a Spelling Bee.
Make sure that competitions are about your child’s strengths and positive qualities and not about another’s player faults or weaknesses.
Let your child know that you trust in his or her abilities. Tell them how awesome they are doing.
Remove any uncertainties or fears they may have.
