It is very important to set goals in our life; making fruitful efforts to reach the goal by defeating difficulties and finally achieve a desirable goal. If you have no desire to achieve anything in your life, the life becomes meaningless. Therefore, parents should teach their kids for aiming higher and setting some goals in life from childhood. Once they understand all about setting goal and how to achieve it they start setting goals themselves.

Do not let your child to get depressed for his failure in achieving goal. Use positive attitude to motivate your child and hide his disability.

Time management is very essential in achieving any goal so always teach your child about advantages of precise time management in life to progress and achieve success. When your kid achieves small goal, encourage him by giving some gift or take him to the movie or hotel for dinner. Make him feel proud for the accomplishment of task. Children put extra efforts in their work if you appreciate and respect them for their work.
