Personal short term and long term goals are important to any family unit. What does Mom want to accomplish this year and beyond? What about Dad? Don’t forget the kids, they have goals too – from trying a new sport, improving their skills at a prior activity, doing well in school, etc. Employment changes, large household purchases, a special family vacation should all be considered in goals for either the coming year or future years. Setting these goals as a family can help everyone enjoy them and minimize any stressors that may come with them.
