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.

Materials:

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

Outcome:

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.
