Topics for the week of September 27th to October 1st
In this week’s lesson, your child will identify a goal they want to work on, anticipate roadblocks, and develop an If–Then Plan for their own goal.
Think of a time you achieved a big goal, such as learning to drive or graduating from school. Tell your child about your big goal and some of the smaller goals you needed to finish in order to achieve it. Ask your child to tell you about a goal they have.
In this week's lesson, your child will identify and respond to positive and negative influences that may affect them while pursuing a goal.
Tell your child about something positive or negative that influenced you as you were working toward a goal. For example, a friend who helped you find a job or learn a new skill. Ask your child about positive and negative factors that may influence them.
This week, students will practice identifying their own and others' emotions and actions in various common scenarios, such as time management, friend interactions, and more. The aim is to help students learn the importance of considering the perspectives of others.
Share with your student how understanding your own emotions and perspective as well as those of others affects your interpersonal interactions and your decision making.
