GOAL SLOGAN: I CAN DISTINGUISH THE URGENT FROM THE IMPORTANT
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 the most important things in your lives reflected in your family life? Do your children occupy the space that corresponds to them in the way you dedicate your time?
- Do you neglect important matters because you are caught up in professional obligations?
- Do you talk to your children about the priorities of family life, so that they’ll know how to cope with it as well?
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.
- Encourage your child to take part in important family occasions like birthdays, weddings, funerals, family meetings, etc.
- Even if tired, remember that short conversations with your children are an important item on the list of things to do during the day.
- Encourage your children to plan their tasks, and include studying as an important part of every day.
- Teach them how you plan your own life, so that they can see how we differentiate between important things and urgent things, and that planning is a good tool for doing this.
