HOT WINGS: Go for the GOAL!

Kids (and often adults) want instant gratification, and it's important to realize that sometimes it takes a series of small actions to lead to a big result! There are times kids have to do several different things in order to get the results they want. For example, if a child wants a 100% on their spelling test it is best for them to study a little each night and work on their spelling homework daily so they know the words for the test at the end of the week.

At WINGS, we teach kids to remember how to achieve goals.

G     Get Ready    Mentally prepare by setting a deadline and thinking of what you want to do, and what you need to do in order to achieve it.

O     Organizey    Layout all of the things you need to do in order to make your goal happen.

A     Ask for help    Find people and things that can help you get closer to your goal.

L     Launch    Get moving! Start working on everything you need to do.

S     Summarize    Look back on what you've done and think of anything else you could do or could have done better.

Sit down with your child and review these steps when creating goals that he/she wants to achieve. Once you've modeled the process, they can feel confident going through the process by themselves.
