Parent Goals

To help parents set and achieve monthly goals, both as parents and as a couple.

Activity Instructions:

Look at the big picture first. What is your long-term, shared vision for your family,and for your relationship. Create a two- to five-year plan to set and reach future goals. Some examples of areas you can focus on include:

  • Communication
  • Discipline
  • Spending time together as a couple
  • Vacations
  • Attitudes
  • Entertainment
  • Physical, spiritual and financial well-being
  • Community service
  • Education
  • Extracurricular activities

Brainstorm each category, and choose one or two to focus in on. Keep trimming back until you end up with a small number of significant goals. To create some short-term goals under the above categories, look at your short-term vision. What can you break up into smaller chunks? Once you identify the smaller goals, create action steps to implement on a daily or weekly basis.


  • Writing materials
  • Large paper or whiteboard (helpful, but not necessary)


This activity provides structure for parents to create goals and work toward achieving their desired vision for the family. It also improves communication and helps in maintaining accountability.
