Fishful Thought of the Day - Hope & Goal Setting

Hope isn’t just passively wishing and waiting for something to happen. Hope leads to the drive to set and pursue goals, take risks and initiate action. Hope fuels problem-solving and helps children develop personal strengths and social resources. Research shows that high-hope people are excited about the future and set goals for themselves. Fishful ThinkingSM gives parents tools to teach their children how to set positive goals, develop a system of appropriate rewards, and promote strategies of thinking that will enable children to go after whatever they want out of life.

Activity idea: With the school year just around the corner (or just getting started), check out this video about how to create a Goal Road Map with your child. There's a cute printout you can use too!
