GOAL SLOGAN: I GET INVOLVED IN WORTHWHILE 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.
- Are your children afraid to commit themselves to things? Can you encourage them to get involved in a project in which they make sacrifices for others?
- Do you give them time to do something for others, or do you overload them with “extra-curricular activities” (courses, sports, languages, etc.)?
- Do your children help out at home, e.g. with their smaller siblings? Are they given specific chores or jobs to do?
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.
- It may be worthwhile suggesting to your children that they might devote part of their weekends and holidays to some form of social or charitable organisation, or volunteer group, etc. Encourage them to take part in activities of this type with classmates.
- Look favourably on the commitment of your children with respect to social initiatives, as a means of getting to know new people and extending their horizons, leaving behind selfishness and interest in themselves alone.
- Talk at home about humanitarian disasters that occur in various parts of the world and as well as praying for the victims, suggest that your children get their friends involved in some way to help with a solution, something can always be done to help!
