Planning and Decision Making
Kids know how to plan ahead and make choices.
AT HOME - Model how to make a good decision. 1) gathering information, 2) viewing the choice from all sides, 3)weighing potential consequences, 4) listing pros and cons, 5) making a choice and sticking to it.
FOR THE KIDS - If you’re a poor planner, start simple: Make a daily TO DO list. Check items off as you complete them. If you’re a great planner share your gift with your friends. Let them know what works for you. Planning ahead, builds responsibility which builds good decision making skills. One step at a time.
