GOAL SLOGAN: I MAKE MYSELF KNOWN AND I SHARE WHAT I DO
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.
- How do I cultivate the art of conversation? Do I try to talk to my friends about our common interests and hobbies?
- What do I do to get to know the parents of my children’s classmates?
- What attitude to I demonstrate when my children want to talk about their motivations of problems, when they want to share what they have done on their own or with their classmates?
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 to work on developing this month’s skill.
- By trying to express and showing interest about the things our children tell us with our words and gestures (stop what you are doing and look them in the eye and acknowledge that you are following their explanation using your own words€).
- Meet your children’s friends and classmates. Show interest in their hobbies and interests.
- Maintain frequent conversations with your children about their relationships with their friends and classmates. In these conversation, and in a regular manner, express the positive role of friendship.
- By being aware that as parents, you are the prime example of the good relations that need to exist between people. Reflect on your own family relationships. Encourage your children to have new friends on the basis of being known, being friendly and lending support and help.
