GOAL SLOGAN: I HELP THOSE IN NEED AND SOCIAL PROJECTS
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 regularly plan your activities and figure out the appropriate time needed for each task? Do you act in accordance with the established plan?
- Do you ask your children if they know, or if they have planned their weekend activities and when they will do them?
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.
- Make them realise that the ‘house is not a hotel’ where they come to eat and sleep. Encourage them to spend time every day and talk to other family members and to show interest in the problems of others.
- Set an example by helping a family member or another person in need; do the shopping for them, take them to the doctor, visit them, etc. Involve your children in this type of help for others.
- Encourage your children and their colleagues to help others on the weekends, in the afternoons, on holidays, etc. Make suggestions, like helping out family members or local residents, at a charity event or signing up for a work camp, etc.
