GOAL SLOGAN: I TRY TO KNOW ME
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT.
The questions below are designed to help you think about how you can help from home with the skills development programme your child is taking part in.
- During conversations with our children about themselves, do we try to talk about both their strengths and weaknesses?
- Are we in the habit of presenting ourselves as we are by exposing our successes and failures?
- Do we calmly accept constructive criticism from others, taking it as useful information about what we need to improve?
HOW CAN WE HELP?
The suggestions below show when personal parental involvement is necessary. The aim of the subjects proposed is to demonstrate where you might be able to support your child and help him work on developing this month’s skill.
- Put you in situations where you can see yourself differently. For example, if he considers himself clumsy, ask him for help to fix something, if he is very clueless, order the purchase … Then, highlight, to the rest of the family, that ability that he has shown and that he believed he lacked.
- Ensure that our children are excited to speak confidently with their personal tutor. Transmitting to our children that talking about our goals and our concerns helps us get to know each other better.
- We try to tell each other sincerely but also delicately, and generally alone, to avoid anyone feeling humiliated.
