GOAL SLOGAN: I RESPECT THE TIMETABLES AND PLANS FOR EVERY DAY
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.
- Do you help your children to ensure that they meet the requirements of their daily responsibilities?
- Do you dedicate too much time to unimportant things?
- Do you have a plan for your tasks and activities (which is more or less defined) or do you take decisions at the last moment?
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.
- Implement descriptive praise when you see that your child has been orderly in some manner, e.g. “I see that you have put your clothes in their place”, or “It’s nice to see the desk with everything in its place.”
- Establish the sharing of domestic chores together and ask everyone to do their chores when it is time.
- Try not to replace your children in those tasks that they themselves can undertake.
- Work and strive to have plans established for every day and week with routines that should be kept to, e.g. eat together every night, everyone should prepare their clothes for the following day, etc. In a weekly cycle, do the housework and spend Saturdays together, etc.
